Hamp. College President Stresses 
A New Sense of Taste to Grads 

Cot That, Now? 





He defined "three principal un- 
dertakings which seem to me 
crucial if undergraduate educa- 
tion is to have relevance to the 
agenda of our tige and the lives 
our students live." 

Dr. Patterson said: "One un- 
dertaking is to see that philoso- 
phy becomes a central concern in 
the curriculum and community of 
the college ... A second is to see 
that language becomes a central 
concern of education and life . . . 
A third is to see that action pos- 
sibilties are realized in and 
through college education so stu- 
dents may encounter directly the 
realities, risks and rewards of 
participating in the affairs of 
their time." 

Former director of the Lincoln 
Filene Center at Tufts Univer- 
sity, Dr. Patterson was named 
this year to the presidency of a 
new liberal arts college scheduled 
to open in 1969 in South Am- 
herst. He spoke at ceremonies at 
which more than 1500 UMass 
undergraduate, graduate and 
two-year Stockbridge Agricul- 
tural School students received 

In defining the role of philoso- 
phy, Dr. Patterson recommended 

that "education should lead us 
continually and consciously to 
apply the hard basic questions 
of philosophy to the data of life 
as it has been, as it is and as it 
may be." 

He suggested that colleges put 
philosophy at the "vital core of 
curriculum and community, an 
open discourse at the heart of 
everything in education. More 
than this, I hope for colleges that 
will help our whole society in in- 
venting its moral future." 

The study of language, accord- 
ing to Dr. Patterson, should in- 
clude semantic analysis, linguis- 
tics, mathematics, symbolic logic 
and the study of tongues foreign 
to our own. 

He called for colleges "that 
will help lead our whole society 
in establishing lines of sanity and 
beauty in the communication 
stimuli now so overwhelmingly 
available to us." 

Defining action as applied to 
undergraduate education, the 
Hampshire College president sug- 
gested college programs that will 
"actively and wisely enable stu- 
dents to connect with the world 
of action and service beyond the 
college gates." 

Dr. Patterson suggested more 
college involvement with pro- 
grams like the Peace Corps and 
VISTA, and more innovations in 
student leave and sabbatical pro- 
grams. "I hope for colleges that 
will help lead our whole society 
to a new conception of the edu- 
cated person's role in coping with 
our age," he said. 

Defining the "agenda of our 
age," Dr. Patterson said it is oc- 
cupied by potentialities and de- 
ficits of increasing mechaniza- 
tion, bigness and complexity, 
commercialism, chaotic stimula- 

tion and impersonality. 

Commercialization, he noted, 
may simply be a feature of a so- 
ciety which is "still too nouveau 
riche to know better" and has a 
tendency to reduce all substance 
and relationships to money terms 
and the hard sell. "The question 
is one of taste in human life, of 
what is genuinely worth valuing, 
of how we can live as more than 
anxiously affluent apes," Dr. 
Patterson said. 

Explaining his charge that 
much of today's collegiate educa- 
tion does not consciously respond 
to this agenda, Dr. Patterson 
stated: "By and large, the uncon-

Honorary Degrees Awarded 
To Outstanding Six 

Six eminent men and women 
were presented honorary degrees 
Sunday afternoon at commence- 
ment exercises marking the close 
of the 103rd year of the Univer- 

Dr. Helen Brooke Taussig 
president of the American Heart 
Association, was presented with 
the degree of Doctor of Science. 
A research pioneer in heart dis- 
ease in children and pulmonary 
stenosis, the cause of "blue ba- 
bies," Dr. Taussig was cited for 
contributions "significant be- 
cause of their great spirit of hu- 

'Through your dedicated re- 
search and your love of life, you 
have given the breath of life to 
thousands who would not have 

lived," her citation stated. 

Awarded the degree of Doctor 
of Humane Letters was Barbara 
Wertheim Tuchman, author of 
the Pulitzer Prize-winning his- 
tory of the start of World War I, 
"The Guns of August." 

The citation says of her work: 
"To record those first thirty cri- 
tical days, you entered no proud 
tower of isolation, but rather 
tramped the ground on which 
history was made. You trained 
the august guns of scholarship, 
critical reporting and polished 
exposition on people and events 
that exploded across the world. 
smashing an era into oblivion."

Co-id Graduates 4 Years of "A s 



A University of Massachusetts 
senior — the first graduate of the 
College of Arts and Sciences to 
receive all A's all through her 
college career — was presented an 
award from the Associate Alum- 
ni created for the occasion at U- 
Mass commencement exercises 

Miss Roberta M. Bernstein, 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George 
J. Bernstein of 21 Francis Rd., 
Sharon, was given the first Al-

her entire college career. How 
truly remarkable her achieve- 
ment really Is can beat be ap- 
preciated by noting that there 
have been almost 6,000 gradu- 
ates of the College over the past 
11 years. 

"A similar award will be pre- 
sented in the future if we ever 
have another graduate who is 
able to duplicate Miss Bernstein's 
achievement," Dean Hunsberger 
added. The award was a sum of 

The Sharon senior majored in 
German, spent her junior year at 
the University of Heidelberg in 
Germany, and will study art his- 
tory in graduate school under a 
Woodrow Wilson Fellowship next 

She is the only Summa Cum 
Laude graduate of the approxi- 
mately 1,200 in the 1966 UMass 
class and is a member of four 
honoraries: Phi Beta Kappa, Phi 
Kappa Phi, Alpha Lambda Delta 
and Mortarboard. 

Prof. Testifies 

A University of Massachusetts 
professor who is an authority on 
international law and a former 
legal advisor to the Hungarian 
ministry of finance was scheduled 
to testify Tuesday, June 7 
before the House Foreign Affairs 
Committee in Washington. 

The committee, gathering in- 
formation on U.S. economic poli- 
cies in Eastern Europe, call- 
ed Dr. Ferenc A. Vali to testify 
as an expert. The House commit- 
tee is investigating possible ex- 
tension of trade benefits among 
countries of Eastern Europe un- 
der the "most favored nation" 

Dr. Vali, a native of Budapest, 
is a graduate of the University 
of Budapest and the University 
of London. He is a professor of 
government and the author of 
approximately 40 articles and 8 
books on international law and

Student Urges 
Civil Rights

A call was issued today for 
"students to participate in James 
Meredith's 'Mississippi Freedom 
March' to Jackson, Mississippi" 
by Michael Murphy, a member 
of the College Young Democra- 
tic Clubs of America, National 
Executive Committee. "Their 
presence would do much to dispel 
fear and further the cause of 
equal rights in Mississippi," he 

Murphy, a student at Vander- 
bilt University, said although 
there had been progress in the 
South, "the attempt on Mere- 
dith's life last Monday made it 
clear that Southern leadership 
has failed to meet its responsi- 

The Meredith shooting was a 
"tragedy" for the people of Mis- 
sissippi, which also speaks to the 
heart of all men who value hu- 
man dignity and aspire to a bet- 
ter life," said Murphy. 

Murphy called for a united ef- 
fort in Congress and the nation 
to "renew our effort to insure 
equal rights and offer every 
American a life free from fear 
and full of opportunity."

With six regulars batting over 
.300 the University of Massachu- 
setts varsity baseball team 
climaxed Coach Earl Lorden's 
nineteen year coaching tenure 
with 20 wins and 6 losses and hit 
.306 as a team for a new school 
team batting average record. 

Terry Swanson (Belmont) .358, 
Alex Vyce (Chicopee) .340, Frank 
Stewart (Lynnfield) .336, Hagan 
Andersen (Haworth, N.J.) .333, 
Ted Mareno (Quincy) .333 and 
Jim Babyak (Easthampton) .330 
were starters who led the hard 
hitting attack. 

Catcher Jim Kuczynski (West- 
field) and Andersen paced the 
squad with five home runs apiece 
and Babyak had one third of the 
team's 36 stolen bases. Andersen 
led in the extra base hit category 
with 14, seven doubles, two tri- 

ples and five home runs. 

Pitcher Carl Boteze, a junior 
from Pittsfield, accounted for 
half of the team's decisions as he 
appeared in fourteen games, won 
ten and lost three while compil- 
ing a 2.76 earned run average. 
Boteze, a converted infie'der, has 
now won fifteen games in two 
seasons for the Redmen and is 
on his way to becoming the 
school's all time winning pitcher. 

The Redmen tied with Maine 
and Connecticut for the Yankee 
Conference Championship and 
then downed the Huskies to 
qualify for the District I play- 
offs where an 8-5 lose to Boston 
College in the single elimination 
tournament brought down the 
curtain on Coach Earl Lorden's

scious response of American col- 
leges and universities until re- 
cently has been to go along with 
the forces I have mentioned and 
even to contribute to them." 

The UMass commencement 
speaker challenged colleges to 
provide powerful new impulses of 
conscious change to counteract 
forces of our age that "move us 
relentlessly toward defining mo- 
rality, communication and man 
himself in terms of machines. 

"Colleges can remain trans- 
mitters of the culture of the past. 
They can serve as preparers of 
the advanced manpower of a 
technological society. Or they 
can respect these functions while 
transcending them. In my view, 
the college can justify itself in 
our age only by helping trans- 
cend our age," Dr. Patterson said. 

He called for colleges and uni- 
versities to lead "an intervention 
toward a new morality, a new 
sense of taste and civility, a new 
metaphor of community, a new 
measure of meaning above the 
machines that left alone will dic- 
tate our life and death." Educa- 
tion is likely to provide such im- 
pulses only as it addresses us to 
the central question "how can 
men become human?", he added. 

Dr. Patterson concluded: "The 
real needs — and the magnificent 
opportunities — of education in 
our time are in developing a legi- 
timate sense of meaning in the 
midst of change, of overcoming 
a sense of powerlessness, of de- 
veloping taste and the use of lei- 
sure in a civilized form, of 
achieving sensible identity."

Summer Arts Program Lecture 

Viereck Reviews New Russian Revolution 

•New Attitude in Russia"— Viereck 


"Ultramodern" is the word and "Telephone system" is the serv- 
ice as UMass will be using the CENTREX telephone system this fall. 

Boasting a building all its own for the complex network of re- 
lays and wires, the centrex system will boast such advantages as 
direct dialing to other campus areas as well as to long-distance areas. 

Other innovations for the university's new phone system will be: 
a telephone in each dormitory room, a separate listing for each room 
phone, the availability of the campus operator at all times ("Good 
afternoon. UniVERsitece . . ."), and automatic identification of the 
calling telephone number on direct-dialed long-distance calls. 

Slated to go into operation this September 11, the new dial sys- 
tem will facilitate more effective communication between students, 
faculty and administration as well as providing more effective serv- 
ice to the incoming public and to parents. It will also become an in- 
strument of learning as the student may soon listen to recorded lec- 
tures by simply dialing a number. 

Work on the installation of the complex system, involving the 
installation of over 4,000 telephones, tons of equipment for new 
switchboard installations and miles off wiring is now under way and 

will be completed before the 

Summer Govt. 



"We're still having a problem 
reaching the commutors. Appar- 
ently they aren't aware that they 
are a part of this summer gov- 
ernment just like the dorm stu- 
dents," this was the way Lew 
Gurwitz, head of Summer Stu- 
dent Government, characterized 
one of the few problems facing 
the first founding of the univer- 
sity's summer government pro- 

Stressing the fact that not all 
the seats have received nomina- 
tions, and that nominations close 
today, Gurwitz called for more 
commitment from interested stu- 
dents who want to be a part of 
the decision-making process in 
summer government. 

"We had a candidates meeting 
last night," Gurwitz explained, 
and we started to set up the 
groundwork for policy decisions. 
We also discussed what we can

start of school in the fall. 

One of the few anticipated 
sore spots in the program will 
be wher the room receives its 
monthly bill . . . and the room- 
mates have to decide who called 
where and when, and how long 
they talked, and who is going to 
pay for what. 

Another, less sore but still a 
problem, is that of practical 
jokers who call in the middle of 
the night; or of perennial "I- 
haven't - got-the-assignment'ers" 
who, once they learn your num- 
ber, never cease calling. 

However, the Centrex system, 
promising recorded lectures, 
should help to solve this prob-

Summer Reporter 

"Rebel Poets of Russia With American Par- 
allels," a lecture by Dr. Peter Viereck, profes- 
sor of European and Russian history at Mt. Hol- 
yoke College, initiated the second annual Sum- 
mer Arts Program at UMass. 

Speaking last Thursday night in the Student 
Union Ballroom, the Pulitzer Prize winner and 
three time visitor to Russia maintained that there 
is a real revolt in the Soviet Union today. 

It is not a political revolution, he warned, but 
rather a profound revolution of the private life 
against "inhuman public sloganizing and tech- 
nological materialism." It is not an ideological 
revolution, Viereck continued, it is neither anti- 
communist nor pro west, but rather the revolu- 
tion represents desire for privacy among soviet 

Describing the "new attitude in Russia" Dr. 
Viereck, who left Friday for his fourth trip to 

in the United States. There is not much differ- 
ence Viereck emphasized "between being coerced 
by the social engineers of the East and being se- 
duced by the Madison Avenue capitalists." The 
revolt is against the organization man, the bu- 

Continuing, Viereck stated that many Soviet 
parents had lamented to him that they don't 
understand their children. The youth of Russia and 
the youth of Berkeley and the civil rights groups 
are not ideologists, Viereck contends. They are 
merely expressing a compassion for the oppressed. 
This, says Viereck is what is known as the "con- 
spiracy of feelings" in Russia. 

To Viereck, Communism is dead as a world 
revolution. He emphasized that most Russians 
do not hate "big brother," they are just bored 
with him. Although a military success, Commun- 
ism is an ideological failure, said Viereck. 

Dr. Viereck won the Pulitzer Prize for his 
book of poetry, Terror and Decorum. He has 
written several other books including The Un-

Summer Orientation Program 
Offers Welcome to UMass 


Summer Reporter 

The lucky high school senior 
has received that beautiful letter 
of acceptance from UMass and 
paid his matriculation fee. Then 
the deluge of mail starts. This is 
the beginning of freshman orien- 
tation. The climax comes in the 
summer when he comes to cam- 
pus for a hectic, three-day whirl 
of testing, advice and social ac- 

The freshman orientation pro- 
gram, which is run by the Coun- 
seling Office, began eight years 
ago when Dean of Students Wil- 
liam F. Field, then director of 
guidance, decided that the fresh- 
man class had become too large 
for all members to come togeth- 
er for testing a few days before 
the fall term started. 

Measure Strength 

"The idea of the program is to 
give incoming students at least 
one period when they can get 
to know the University without 
many demands upon them," ex- 
plains Simon Keochakian of the 
Counseling Office, one of the co- 
ordinators of the program. 

"They come in small numbers 
—this year a class of 3,200 will 
come in groups of 450. We mea- 
sure their strengths and weak- 
nesses and place them in courses 
that are compatible with their 
level of functioning. 

"It is a reasonably relaxed 
time for students to get to know 
the University and other stu- 
dents. Each student gets a chance 
to talk individually with a facul- 
ty member. He gets his courses 
for the first semester set up in 

The Big Step 

"The deans of men and women 
give information on resident liv- 
ing, extracurricular activities and 
social life. The student will have 
time to hear about these aspects 
of the University and then think 
about them at home. We hope 
the student can get to know 
himself better and find the tran- 
sition from high school to college 
more comfortable." 

The Counseling Office plans to 
keep the content and philosophy 
of this program basically the 

same as the University grows 
and each Freshman Class gets 

Using computers on a large 
scale will help make the pro- 
gram even more efficient, and 
to accommodate the growing 
numbers administrators hope to 
hold two orientation sessions a 
week in the future. 

Life Saver 

When the freshman jumps into 
college life in September, the 
sophomore honorary societies are 
there to throw a lifesaver if he 
panics and starts to drown. 
Through the big-and-little-sister 
program, each freshman girl is 
assigned a sophomore in her 
dorm. Each girl's dorm also has 
two Scrolls assigned to it. Next 
year the Keys also will be as- 
signed to dorms. 

Felisa Alagar of the Scrolls 

points out that this program 
will be only as successful as the 
participating girls want it to be. 

"The Scrolls can't take every 
freshman by the hand or force 
every sophomore to be friendly 
with her little sister," she said. 
"The Scrolls are always there 
when needed, but it has to be 
up to the freshman girl to take 
the initiative when she needs 

This sentiment is echoed by 
the Counseling Office, which 
feels its formal obligation to each 
freshman ends after the summer 
orientation program. "The stu- 
dent is on his own," says Keoch- 
akian. "It would be a mistake 
to set up a paternalistic struc- 
ture where each student is still 
in the shadow of a parent sur-

Oriented or fixated? This co-ed seems to be enjoying at least 
a part of the three-day orientation Including "testing, advice 
and social activities."

Blasko Has Them By the Carloads! 

by GENA COREA — Summer Staff 

Students staged a snowball fight in the Hatch one Friday night; someone attempted suicide a 
few weeks ago; furniture worth $875 was taken from James House on Feb. 19; money is lost and lege, it was announced recently 

He Wants A "Southwest 


Prof. Dean Albertson of the 
University of Massachusetts 
history department has been 
appointed Associate Master of 
the Southwest Residential Col- 

accidents happen all year long. 

"I'm the boy that's got all the problems," says University Police Chief Alexander Blasko. A neat, 
trim man, the chief has a gruff voice, a wrinkled face and a campus full of headaches. 

Because of the expanding University and the lack of adequate parking facilities, parking is the 
biggest problem. 

"The police own plenty of signs to indicate where parking is legal," the chief says, pointing to 
a supply of extra signs kept in a white cement 
storage building next to the station. 

"This," said Blasko picking up a rectangular 
metal sign, "says, 'No Parking To Corner', and 
that's exactly what it means." 

Pointing to another sign, he said, "This says 
'Staff Parking Only', and it means staff parking 
only. This says, 'Visitor Parking Only', and it 
means that bonafide visitors only can park there 
and under no circumstances is anyone else to 

He picked up another sign. "And this is the 
most popular sign on campus, 'Tow-Away Zone — 
No Parking'. Anyone who parks there can ex- 
pect nothir.g but a tow." 

The chief isn't alone in facing these problems. 
Besides Blasko, the force has one sergeant and 
10 officers to grapple with the mishaps of a col- 
lege community. Thirty special officers work 
part-time. They are called in for large gather- 
ings and on such emergency occasions as last 
November's blackout. 

During the day, some of the officers are as- 
signed to campus tours in the station's two crui- 
sers, which are equipped with stretchers and 
first-aid kits. The men investigate thefts and ac- 
cidents, carry stricken students to the infirmary 
and tag illegally parked cars. 

Headquarters for these officers is in a pink 
cement rectangular building opposite the South- 
west Complex. The inside of this police station 
looks clean and efficient. Green cement walls, a 
white ceiling and long fluorescent light tubes 
give the building a brisk atmosphere. Rubber 
treading leads to a four-foot grey metal counter. 
Behind the counter stand several grey and brown 
file cabinets. 

The equipment in the office is modern. A 
monitor radio receiver keeps the office in contact 
with the Amherst police and 
the cruisers. 

A campus — full of headaches 

by Prof. Clarence Shute, Mas- 
ter of the College. 

The Southwest Residential 
College, which last semester 
had approximately 820 students 
in four low-rise buildings, will 
increase to 3550 when its five 
22-story tower residences open 
in September and is expected 
to house 5300 when all 17 resi- 
dences are completed in Sep- 
tember, 1968. 

The UMass residential col- 
lege program is designed to 
bring students and faculty to- 
gether in a residential-educa- 
tional community by the addi- 
tion of a faculty staff and a 
program of classes and relat- 
ed activities within the resi- 
dence. The Orchard Hill Resi- 
dential College, established in 
1964 for 1300 students, began 
the program. 

Dr. Shute estimated that 75 
faculty members will be need- 
ed at the Southwest College in 
the next academic year to pro- 
vide the minimum number of 
preceptors and their support- 
ing staffs of faculty fellows. 

In October of last year he ac- 
cepted the preceptorship of 
Ralph Waldo Emerson House, 
one of the four residences of 
the Southwest College that 
opened last September. He is 
the director of the National 
Defense Education Act insti- 
tute for high school social sci- 
ence teachers to be held at U- 
Mass this summer. 

Speaking on the objectives 
of Southwest Residential Col- 
lege, Dr. Albertsor said: "Its 

comprehensive purpose should 
be to help those who choose to 
live in the College become a 
community of students in the 
fullest sense of the term — as- 
pirants toward excellence in 
academic and personal eprfor- 

"Working with the estab- 
lished departments of the Uni- 
versity, the College should 
provide a program of what I 
like to call 'augmented learn- 
ing.' Of course students have 
personal concerns which are 
not academic. But instead of 
treating these as peripheral I

Bill Pending 

State Commissioner of Educa- 
tion Owen B. Kiernan, comment- 
ing on a bill pending before the 
House committee on Ways and 
Means, estimates it would cost 
the Commonwealth $7500 a year 
to provide scholarships for grad- 
uate work in special education. 

The bill is one of the legisla- 
tive recommendations of a spe- 
cial commission established to 
investigate and study retarded 
children and available facilities. 
It would authorize the state to 
grant 25 scholarships a year to 
graduates of college to meet the 
standards for teachers of mental- 
ly retarded. 

Each of the scholarships could 
not exceed $300. The bill is one 
of scores of proposals suggested 
by the commission being studied 
by the House committee on Ways 
and Means. 

The police also own two port- 
able radios. The Amherst and 
state police sometime borrow 
these units when hunting for 
someone lost in a mountain or 
anytime communication between 
two posts is necessary. The ra- 
dios are connected with the uni- 
versity operator in Stockbridge 
Hall. If someone calls the sta- 
tion and there is no one in, the 
operator automatically answers 
the call on the fourth ring. 

Besides radios, the station 
owns several Detex Alerts. These 
are clocks in leather cases with 
straps which the night watch- 

This Quintet 
Has Brass 

A concert by the American 
Brass Quintet, on Wednesday, 
June 22, will open the Fine Arts 
concert series. 

The Quintet, originally organ- 
ized in 1957, specializes in educa- 
tional concerts. Since that time 
they have appeared on radio and 
television, in 20 New York re- 
citals and have toured frequent- 
ly throughout the U.S. 

Chamber music for brass has 
enjoyed a renaissance for some 
years and has become a very 
popular attraction in the concert 
world. The Quintet is one of the 
outstanding proponents of this 

A unique ensemble of virtuoso 
instrumentalists, the group's for- 
mation is the fruition of over a 
decade of individual devotion to 
the ideal of brass chamber music. 

Their appearance marks the 
first of the summer concerts, 
and is the first visit to the Uni- 
versity by a Brass Chamber 
group. The program will begin 
at 8 p.m. in the Student Union 

Admission charges for events 
are as follows: Films, 50 cents; 
Concerts, $1.50; Lectures and 
exhibits free. 

men carry on their rounds. Each 
man has a certain route. At spe- 
cific places in each building is 
a key which the watchman in- 
serts in the clock. This makes 
a mark indicating the time on 
a disk of paper in the clock. 
These disks are kept as records 
of the watchmen's rounds. 

"The job is no fun," accord- 
ing to Officer Philip Cavanaugh. 
He explains: "The university's 
eight watchmen have one of the 
most responsible jobs with one 
of the lowest salary scales on 
campus. The men work from 
9 p.m. to 4 a.m. in all kinds of 
weather. Because they walk 
from warm building to cold 
campus to warm building all 
night, they often become sick. 
Understandably, there is a high 
turn-over rate for this posi- 

But the job is important and 
must be done. Often, watchmen 
discover faulty doors, refriger- 
ator leaks and fire hazards that 
would not otherwise be found 
during the night. Although 
they are not officers, these 
men also do police work. If 
they see a car crash into a tree 
and screech off, they take 
down the license number and 
report it to the station to be 

Both the night watchmen 
and the police have plenty of 
work to do. Chief Blasko sums 
up the job: "Well, there's nev- 
er a dull moment, let's put it 
that way."

U. S. National Student Associ- 
ation plans to begin by mid- 
summer a two-year program 
that will involve students, fac- 
ulty, and administrators in a 
close analysis of the college 
experience — and just what's 
missing from it. 

The program is an out- 
growth of NSA's three-day 
conference on student stress 
at Warrenton, Va., last fall. 
The stress conference was fi- 
nanced by grants from the Na- 
tional Institute of Mental 
Health and the Danforth Foun- 
dation. Another NIMH grant 
has made possible the two-year 
Campus Self-Studies Program, 
NSA spokesmen said, in an- 
nouncing their plans. 

The new program was dis- 
closed at a press conference in 
Washington this week at the 
same time the official report 
on the stress conference was 

In announcing the program, 
NSA President Philip Sher- 
burne termed it a "program to 
make known the problems and 
the needs" of the student — 
"the forgotten man in higher 
education." Sherburne said this 
program "represents the broad- 
est, most thoroughly integrat- 
ed" of the NSA efforts in edu-

"Governor John A. Volpe today

Latvia and Lithuania by the 
Soviet Union since June 1940." 

Dear Governor Volpe, 

Please proclaim the period of 
June 20-27 as Yahoo Freedom

ban suit waited until the last 
possible moment to file their 
answer in the Federal District 
Court of Greensboro. 

The answer, filed last week- 
end, contained a motion to sep- 
arate the complaints of the 
student plaintiffs and the 
speaker plaintiffs and several 
motions to dismiss the suit. 

The speaker ban suit was 
filed by 14 NC student leaders, 
Herbert Aptheker, and Frank 
Wilkinson. Aptheker and Wil- 
kinson were twice refused per- 
mission to speak on the Chapel 
Hill campus during the past 
year; the suit charges that 
they and the students were de- 
nied constitutional rights. 

Andrew Vanore, a member of 
the North Carolina attorney 
general's staff, filed the an- 
swer on behalf of NC Presi- 
dent William C. Friday, Chapel 
Hill Chancellor J. Carlyle Sit- 
terson, and the university's 
trustees — the defendants nam- 
ed in the complaint. 

The plaintiffs have 20 days 
to file their answer to the de- 
fendants' brief. 

This last waiting period is 
expected to kill the suit be- 

cause the school year at NC 
will have ended, and many of 
the 14 students who are plain- 
tiffs will have left Chapel Hill. 
In addition, the suit only 
charges that Aptheker and Wil- 
kinson were denied the right to 
speak during this school year, 
and the end of the school year 
might be judged as grounds 
for dismissal. 

These items have long been 
discussed on the Chapel Hill 
campus, and they are believed 
to have figured in the decision 
of the school officials not to 
answer the charges until the 
last possible moment. The com- 
plaint was filed in mid -March 
and the defendants had 60 days 
to answer it. That 60-day peri- 
od was up on Sunday. 

One motion of dismissal 
pleaded that "the complaint on 
its face shows that the stu- 
dents have been denied no 
rights, but, to the contrary, 
have been accorded absolute 
freedom to hear, see, speak, as- 
sociate, demonstrate, congre- 
gate, and assemble and do all

How do you redefine an edu- 
cation so that it meets the 
needs of this generation? How 
can we make the college ex- 
perience a fully valuable one?" 
The program will be run by 
a coordinating staff in the 
NSA national office and will 
directly involve 16 "represent- 
ative campuses" in the plans. 
In addition, Sherburne said, 
another 100 campuses will de- 
velop similar programs with 
help from NSA. 

On each campus about 100 
students, faculty, and adminis- 
trators, including the college 
president, would participate in 
the retreats where the "central 
focus will be on eliminating 
unrewarding frustrations from 
the college experience while de- 
veloping a new concept of 
what it should be." 

NSA representatives said 
that the American college cam- 
pus has become a largely irrel- , 
evant and impersonal place 
and that the discussions at the 
stress conference centered on 
these topics. They suggested 
students as a group are more 
concerned with the quality and 
relevance of their education 
than with any of the topics 
that are thought to top the list 
of student concerns — Vietnam, 
the draft, drugs and sex. 

The students suggested that 
the American campus needed 
to be radically reshaped in or- 
der to provide a student with 
an education that is relevant 
to the "outside world." 

Among the proposals of the 
students from 33 colleges and 
universities who attended the 
stress conference were: 

— Giving students a voice in 
making decisions that affect 
them, ranging from evaluating 
professors' teaching abilities to 
setting social rules and hous- 
ing regulations. 

— Dropping grading for a 
significant number of college 
courses — perhaps for the whole 
freshman year — to encourage 
learning for Its own sake ra- 
ther than competition for 

— Offering college credit for 
"field work" in the Peace 
Corps, poverty programs, civil 
rights activity, and the like. 

— Encouraging more inde- 
pendent study at all levels of

Berkeley's Muscatine Committee mass varsity well 

BERKELEY, Calif. (CPS) — 
The Muscatine Committee at 
the University of California at 
Berkeley has worked energet- 
ically this spring to reform ed- 
ucation by having its recom- 
mendations adopted, but de- 
spite great effort there will be 
little change come September. 

"Real changes will come im- 
perceptibly, but within the next 

10 years we'll be the best cam- 
pus in the nation," Charles 
Muscatine predicted. 

The changes that are to be 
in effect this fall due to the 
Muscatine committee's action 
will probably be overshadowed 
a great deal by the fact that 
the University of California 
system transfers from semes- 
ter to the quarter system in 

To date, Muscatine estimates 

11 of the committee's 42 rec- 
ommendations have been ap- 
proved, without major altera- 
tions, by the Berkeley Academ- 
ic Senate. 

Muscatine said that of the ac- 
cepted recommendations, the 
ones that will have the most 
impact on the campus this fall 

— The pass-not pass grading 
system which has the potential 
to affect about one-fourth of 
all undergraduate grading on 

— The option given instruc- 
tors to conduct their entire 


courses for the whole course 
period on a pass-fail basis. 

Additionally, Muscatine sin- 
gled out one of the most im- 
portant proposals adopted — the 
creation of a Board of Educa- 
tional Development whose au- 
thority would range from ex- 
perimental courses to full de- 
gree-granting programs which 
might not fall under an estab- 
lished school or department of 
the university. (The proposal 
for the Board was actually 
three recommendations.) 

Muscatine said the board's 
existence would make it easier 
to put proposals for experimen- 
tal programs into effect. 

As recommended, the board 
will have six faculty members 
and be presided over by a vice- 
chancellor for academic devel- 
opment. The latter was chang- 
ed to an assistant chancellor. 

The board is considered one 
of the major ways of promot- 
ing gradual change and of 
keeping in contact with stu- 
dents' desires for change. 

It has been criticized, how- 
ever, by students for not allow- 
ing students to serve on the 
board. The students have ar- 
gued that in omitting students 
on the board, the Muscatine 
recommendation omitted rec-

ognition of how much students' 
desires and needs provide the 
impetus for change. 

Other recommendations ap- 
proved allow student evalua- 
tion of all undergraduate cour- 
ses offered in the winter of 
1967; consultation of faculty 
and administration on student 
views of educational policy; 
and student membership on 
the Academic Senate Student 
Affairs Committee. 

Additionally, three proposals 
have been approved which 
urge more sensitive analysis of 
freshmen course records, more 
flexibility in admission stand- 
ards by allowing each campus 
full discretion in admitting or 
rejecting candidates whose av- 
erage falls below the standard, 
and improvement in recruiting 
of able students. 

Another proposal, recom- 
mending that courses taken 
during the first term of resi- 
dence at any level count to- 
ward a degree requirement, 
but be omitted in determining 
a student's grade point aver- 
age, was defeated by a narrow 
margin. Muscatine said the 
proposal will be resubmitted 
next fall. 

The proposal to establish a 
doctor of arts degree for the 
person who has completed all 
Ph.D. requirements except the 
dissertation, ran into opposi-

SciFi Opens 

The University's Science- 
Fiction Club has announced 
the opening of their summer 
program. The Club's 800- vol- 
ume library will be open this 
Wednesday and Friday even- 
ings from 7:00 to 9:00, and 
Saturday afternoon from 1:00 
to 3:00. 

The library is located in 
room 101 Clark Hall. Visitors 
to the library are asked to en- 
ter the building through the 
door facing South Commons. 

Summer membership will be 
open to all summer school stu- 
dents. Although no dues will 
be charged for summer mem- 
bership, members will be asked 
to pay a deposit, which will be 
refunded if all books are re- 
turned satisfactorily. 

The Science - Fiction Club's 
first meeting of the summer 
session will be held this Fri- 
day afternoon at 2:00 p.m. in 
the Student Union. Everyone 
interested is invited to come. 


Close balloting for most po- 
sitions marked the selection of 
the annual Yankee Conference 
baseball team, it was announc- 
ed today. The balloting was by 
the coaches of the six New 
England state university teams. 

Tom Lawton, the southpaw 
who had an earned run aver- 
age of 1.62 for the University 
of Connecticut, was the top 
choice for the pitching posi- 
tion, but was closely followed 
by Carl Boteze of Massachu- 
setts, John McCord of Vermont 
and Gordon Engstrom of 

In the balloting for catcher, 
again the contest was extreme- 
ly close with Carl Merrill of 
Maine and Ed Carroil of Con- 
necticut finishing in a tie. A 
tie also existed at first base be- 
tween Rick Doherty of New 
Hampshire and Bruce Hall- 
worth of Rhode Island. 

Frank Stewart of Massachu- 
setts was unopposed in the bal- 
loting for second base spot 


PROTESTING . . . "There 
must be a nudist in the Elev- 
enth Essex District," Republi- 
can Representative Belden G. 
Bly, Jr. of Saugus revealed to- 
day. Republican Bly explained 
that for several years, he has 
been receiving clothing in the 
mail with cogent notes at- 

Two years ago he received a 
necktie. The attached note 
bore the signature of Owen 
Moore of Debtors Lane. "On 
April 15th, I sent my shirt to 
the Federal Income Tax office 

and, for that reason, I have no 
need for the enclosed tie. Since 
they are taking my pants at 
this session where shall I send 
my suspenders?" 

This year the Saugus legisla- 
tor again heard from the same 
irate citizen. A bundle contain- 
ing a loaf of bread and a tat- 
tered suit coat was received at 
Rep. Bly's house. The enclosed 
note read: "There's the bread 
out of my mouth and the coat 
off my back — my shirt and 
pants went last year." 

while Bud Pepin of Connecti- 
cut was named for the third 
base post. At shortstop, where 
each of the six fielders re- 
ceived votes, Bob Schaefer of 
Connecticut edged out Dick De- 
Varney of Maine. 

George Greer of Connecti- 
cut and Terry Swanson of Mas- 
sachusetts were the top vote 
getters for outfield berths 
while Dave Wayne of Vermont 
and Norm Tardiff of Maine 
tied for the third spot. 

Other vote getters were: 
Catchers: Carl Fisk, New 
Hampshire; Bob McKenney, 
Rhode Island and Jim Kuczyn- 
ski, Massachusetts; pitchers: 
Ted Ordway, Maine; Len Shef- 
lott, Vermont; Ed Baird, Con- 
necticut, and Frank Fleming, 
Rhode Island; third base: Ha- 
gan Anderson, Massachusetts; 
shortstops: Bill Estey, New

He commented further, and 
explained that students at the 
meeting last night hadn't already 
started functioning, but were 
merely trying to get a few of 
the things cleared up so that 
everything will go smoothly once 
the elections are finalized. 

He noted that nominations 
close at five p.m., today, and that 
nomination papers can be filled 
out in the Recognized Student 
Organizations office of the Stu- 
dent Union. 

A new solution to a long- 
standing problem of small col- 
leges was announced recently 
by Franconia College, a three- 
year-old liberal arts institution 
in the White Mountains of 
New Hampshire. 

Although Upper Division stu- 
dents may take courses on the 
Franconia campus, many of 
them will spend a significant 
portion of their time away 
from the College in a variety 
of work, study, and research 
situations. "We want Upper 
Division Students to take ad- 
vantage of the teachers, facili- 
ties, and programs which will 
best fulfill their needs," said 
Franconia President Richard 
R. Ruopp in announcing the 
Upper Division, "Now we have 
found a way to keep these 
wide-ranging activities under 
the personal supervision which 
only a very small college such 
as Franconia can provide." 

An initial group of Upper 
Division students are now pur- 
suing their Studies in a wide 
variety of situations: one is 
a VISTA volunteer studying 
Eskimo culture in an Alaskan 
fishing village; another is 
gaining laboratory experience 
at the Cornell University Medi- 
cal Center in New York City; 
another is helping a group of 
Navajo Indians set up their 
own businesses on a New Mex- 
ico reservation. 

Admission to the program is 
based on a "letter of intent," 
in which a student proposes 
his own course of study after 
consulting with a group of 
teachers who have agreed to 
work with him in the Upper 
Division. To qualify for admis- 
sion, applicants must pass a 
comprehensive examination in 
the humanities. Applicants 
from Franconia's own Lower 
Division will have taken the 
college's two-year "Core" hu- 
manities curriculum ; transfer 
students are expected to have 
done equivalent work else- 

No specific number of cours- 

es or credits will be required 
in the Upper Division, but 
there will be a minimum peri- 
od of eighteen months of study 
required for completion of the 

Graduation from the Upper 
Division will be based on a the- 
sis or comparable final project, 
plus a comprehensive examina- 
tion in the student's chosen 
field or area of study. 

UM Reform 
Comm. Holds 
Summer Sway 

Do you have an interest in 
the University? The University 
Reform Committee does and 
believes that you should. 

The U.R.C. is a student group 
that believes, if the University 
is to become great, the stu- 
dents must take an active role 
in the advancing of new ideas 
and the pointing out of present 
wrongs at the University. 

During the past year, the 
U.R.C. has been active in the 
abolishing of dossiers and wo- 
men's curfews. These measures 
are just a beginning to the un- 
ending goals that the U.R.C. 
believes should be sought. 

Incoming freshmen must 
have read about Yahoo. But, 
there were many other things 
which happened on campus 
last year. 

To the students going to 
summer school, the U.R.C. 
would like you to continue 
your interest and, if you have 
time, aid the U.R.C. summer 

The University will never 
change unless the students be- 
come active. If you are inter- 
ested in the University or just

a college education. The report 
recommended the kind of inde- 
pendent work in which a stu- 
dent can pursue his own strong 
academic interest with guid- 
ance from professors rather 
than the type whi^h allows a 
student to choose one of sever- 
al prearranged topics for study. 

The Warrenton report con- 
cluded that besides an educa- 
tion more relevant to the mod- 
ern world, there should be 
"more authentic and personal- 
ized relationships between stu- 
dents and faculty." It called for 
the revision of the campus 
community from a "nest of ad- 
versaries" to a "group of col- 
laborators" of the teachers and 
the taught.

How the Other Half Lives 

WASHINGTON — Two federal agencies this week announced 
unique programs for vacationing college students. 

Sargent Shriver, director of the Office of Economic Oppor- 
tunity, said that nearly 500 college students will be sent to 
Appalachla this summer to bring reading, writing, and com- 
munity action programs to some of the poorest counties in 
the nation. 

The students were recruited through the VISTA program 
and are the first to be signed up on a summer-only basis. The 
normal VISTA tour of duty is one year with some volunteers 
signing up for a second year. 
The student, who will serve from June 15 to August 15, will 
be sent to 100 communities in the "mountain hollows" of Appal- 
achia, Shriver said. 

Shriver said that some of the volunteers will help organize 
community programs in towns that "have not even learned how 
to take the first step toward community action." 

In another first-time federal program, the Office of Educa- 
tion announced that it is hiring 100 student lawyers for the 
summer to investigate school desegregation complaints.

VISTA Volunteers, like the Commonwealth Corps volunteers 
here, will be going to the Appalachaln district as part of the

students as well as aid for areas like Appalachla. 

pus and 1,500 off-campus 
this summer. At the time of 
the meeting of Tuesday, 
however, only two students 
had offered themselves as 
candidates for off-campus 
representatives, and the 
sixth and seventh floors of 
Field, the second floor of 
Gorman and the basements 
of both Brett and Gorman 
lacked candidates. 
In other constituencies it was 
reported that" as many as four 
candidates were in the field. 
Subsequent to the meeting a 
number of students offered them- 
selves as candidates on those 
floors where previously no one 
had entered the race. 

Due to the difficulties sur- 
veyed by the provisional 
committee, some suggestions 
were made to hold elections 
on a dorm-wide basis. An- 
other suggestion was to have 
the defeated candidates in 
the primary election Thurs- 
day run on those floors 
where no one had been a 

The suggestion finally adopted 
by the provisional committee was 
having the elections as sched- 
uled, followed by the formal es- 
tablishment of the Student Coun- 

The idea is that it would 
give the unrepresented floors 
a certain period of time in 
which to choose a repre- 
sentative and join the Coun- 

The question of whether rep- 
resentatives would have to re- 
side on the floor the represent 
was left to the Council to deter- 
mine. This arrangement was 
agreed to unaminously. 

Administration Building 
Ups Summer Growth 


Entering, the visitor's eye is immediately drawn to a window 
which runs the entire 30-foot length of the building. From this 
vantage point he sees men pouring concrete from a giant cement 
truck, setting up forms for new walls and preparing steel re- 
enforcing rods for columns and walls. Beneath the window is a 
long drafting table cluttered with blueprints and specifications. 
Mathlsen, superintendent for Daniel O'Connell's Sons, Inc., 
of Holyoke, is optimistic about the building progress. 

"We have erected the columns and walls up to the second 
floor, and are right on schedule; and we hope to be finished by 
April of next year," he said. The next step is to form and pour 
the second floor slab. 

Among problems which had to be overcome this winter was 
pouring cement in sub-freezing temperatures. Any cement that 
freezes before hardening will pulverize when the forms are 
removed, said Mathisen. To solve this problem, heated cement 
was used, either wrapped in fiberglass insulating blankets or 
poured in a plastic covered enclosure heated with steam. 
Several unit heaters in the basement keep the temperature a 
little warmer then normal throughout the work area. 

"Even though the shell is coming along quite fast, we are a 
long way from completion; it is the mechanical and finishing work 
which takes the greatest amount of time," said Mathisen. 

Another problem was created by water seepage. A steady 
amount has been coming into the building area, but, Mathisen said, 
the problem is well under control. A sump pump will be used when 
the building is completed, he added. 

Commenting on the good reputation which contractor O'Con- 
nell has on the campus, Mathisen agreed that "any man who has 
been in business 75 years has to do good work to survive. The 
Southwest Complex is indicative of what you can expect." 
The Administration Building, different from every other build- 
ing on campus, will have two distinct features. The first is the 
prominent display of architectural concrete, including several

Summer Reporter 

The University's Reform Com-

day evening. 

Joe Ross, member of the com- 
mittee formed last Spring, stated 
that room inspections previous- 
ly announced in Brett had been 

cancelled by order of the Dean 

of Students office. 

After discussion of sum- 
mer curfews, one co-ed was 
chosen to approach the ad- 
ministration seeking to ex- 
tend womens* curfews to 
midnight. Dick Schinoff, 
chairman of the Student

of court and sentence her to a

Miss Buchanan, the managing 
editor of the Oregon Daily

fused last week to tell a Grand 
Jury the names of seven students 
she had interviewed for a story 
about the use of marijuana. 

Her attorney, Arthur Johnson, 
had asked Circuit Judge Edward 
Leavy to grant him time to pre-

The Committee also discussed 
the locking of vending machine 
rooms and TV room at midnight 
in the men's dorms. 

Other questions included the 
role of the housemother, and vi- 
siting privileges in dorms for 
members of the opposite sex. 

Committee members Pat Doud 
and Joe Ross helped newcomers 
get acquainted with the works of 
the committee when Ross cited 
committee accomplishments in 
the past years. 

He noted that it was in-

Weathering The Libe 

After seeing harried students get irate and more in their efforts 
to divine Libe hours — when it's open, when it isn't, when it might 

be we editors decided to try to solve the problem. We suppose that, 

like New England iveather, these hours are subject to change with- 
out notice; so why not cull the circulation or reserve desk first just 
to double-check. 


The new administration building, sans the observation tower, as it nears its base completion date 
—right on schedule. D. O'Connell, Holyoke, contractors are building this building as well as the 
still-to-be-completed Southwest Residence Area.

types of finishes on the sec- 
ond and third floors. The 
second feature is the concept 
of mound grading. The build- 
ing will be surrounded with 
a mound of earth at the first 
floor level at the wall ami 
sloping outward 35 feet. Be- 
cause the building will be 
air-conditioned, its few win- 
dows will not be opened. 
Mathisen, clad in green work- 
ing clothes and a silver worker's 
hardhat, gives orders to a stream 
of rough-clad workmen who 
daily climb the tower looking for 
advice and instructions. 

Discussing the future building, 
Mathisen also pointed out that 
the main entrance will be to the 

North, towards the SBA build- 
ing. The student entrance will be 
on the East side, towards Old 
Chapel. A long ramp will lead to 
this entrance. 

Snow was not a major 
problem in winter construc- 
tion — it was simply pushed 
aside. Calcium chloride and 
sand were used to reduce 
walking hazards to the work- 
men. In fact, said Mathisen, 
there have been no serious 
accidents in the construction. 
The company has taken on 
more men as weather im- 
proved so the work will go 
faster this summer. 

Architects for the building are 
Campbell, Aldrich & Nulty of 

Boston. This firm has also been 
retained to design the new Grad- 
uate Research Center. 

As the visitor glances out the 
window once more at the scene 
below, he can see a crane lifting 
a 50 by 50-foot section of wall 
form into place. Trucks arc 
bringing in gravel for ground 
floor fill and men pack sand with 
portable tamps. Men are crawl- 
ing over forms hammering them 
together and creating the edifice 
which is to be the new Adminis- 
tration Building.

Molecules— Kills 'em Dead? 


The University of Massachu- 
setts has been awarded a $60,000 
federal grant to explore a new 
concept in the breakdown of 
pesticides, it was announced to- 
day by Dean A. A. Spielman of 
the College of Agriculture. 

Under the U.S. Department 
of Health, Education and Wel- 
fare grant, Dr. Haim B. Gunner 
of the department of environ- 
mental sciences in Amherst and 
Dr. Bert M. Zuckerman of the 
UMass Cranberry Experiment 
Station in Wareham will ex- 
plore how microorganisms in 
the soil may successively break 
down portions of toxic mole- 
cules as they feed on one an- 

Their research will be con- 
ducted with a system which 

they expect to serve as an ac- 
curate model for events taking 
place in nature. 

The model works this way: 
Dr. Gunner feeds radioisotop- 
ically-labeled pesticide to a se- 
lected soil microbe which in 
turn is fed to a selected soil 
nematode maintained by Dr. 

By following the presence of 
the radioisotope, information is 
obtained on the status of the 
pesticide molecule and the joint 
participation of these two or- 
ganisms in its breakdown. 

The two researchers theorize 
that such a cooperative attack 
by numerous organisms is the 
means used by nature to rid it- 
self of these toxic materials. 

Men's Judiciary Says 
Hands Off For Liquor 

For the first time in the 
University Summer School Pro- 
gram, a Men's Judicial board 
will be in operation. This board 
is an extension of the Men's 
Judicial system which normally 
hears cases of student miscon- 
duct during the fall and spring 
semesters. The thre? member 
board has been appointed by 
the student senate in coopera- 
tion with the Dean of Men's 

As in the regular school year, 
the summer board, In coopera- 
tion with the Dean of Men's 
office, will hear incidents of un- 
dergraduate male student mis- 
conduct on or around the Uni- 
versity campus. 

The Judicial system has been 
impowered to return numerous 
recommendations on student 
misconduct to the Dean of Men. 
These recommendations are not 
final, for the Dean may be- 
crease any penalty which he 
views as too severe. 

In no case, however, will the 
Dean ever increase a recommen- 
dation of the Judicial board. In- 
cidents which might be brought 
before the Judicial board are: 
conduct unbecoming a Univer- 
sity student; theft; or accumu- 
lated misconduct in the resident 

system does not work on prece- 
dent, there are offenses re- 
garded as warranting severe ac- 
tion. Among the worst offenses 
a student might be called before 
the board for is theft. 

Another major offense often 
heard by the Judicial Boards is 
misuse of alcoholic beverages. 

The University policy in this 
area is; there will be no use or 
posession of alcoholic beverages 
on this campus, inclusive; a stu- 
dent shall conduct himself in 
a proper manner in regards to 
consumption of alcoholic bever- 
ages at all times. 

It is the recommendation of 
the Summer Judicial board that 
all male undergraduates read 
the section on Men's Judiciary 
found in the regular school year 
student handbook. 

Journalistic Rights 

To the Editor: 

A student at the University of Oregon, manag- 
ing editor of the student paper there, faces six 
months in jail on a contempt of court charge. 
Why? She refused to reveal information 
given to her as a reporter on the condition 
that she not reveal its sources. The right of 
a journalist not to reveal privileged informa- 
tion is protected by law in twelve states, but 
Oregon is not among them (either is Massa- 
Clergymen, doctors, lawyers, and spouses have 
this protection in all states. Must a journalist 
whose success at his profession may depend on 
this privileged information be denied this right in 
thirty-eight states? 

Annette Buchanan will need all the help she 
can get and quickly, for her trial begins on June 
27. Free Press Committee, this cause is certainly 
no less worthy than that of Yahoo. 

Yours truly, 
Patricia M. Paciorek

Annette Needs Help! 


Arise, Free Press Committee, from the sum- 
mer doldrums! 

Help Annette Buchanan! 

Annette is the managing editor of the stu- 
dent newspaper at the U. of Oregon. She goes on 
trial, June 27, on a charge of contempt of court 
by virtue of refusing to reveal her sources of in- 
formation for an article on the use of marijuana 
an the Oregon campus. Her by-lined story had 
appeared on page one of the May 24 Emerald. 
By refusing to prostitute her principles, 
even at the risk of jail for six months and a 
fine of $300, Annette reflects the highest 
ethical traditions of the Fourth Estate. 
Annette needs help. 

In her fight to establish for Oregon what 11 
other states have already decided is proper pro- 
tection for journalists (Mass. is not one of them), 
Annette should have the moral and financial sup- 
port of every fair-minded student and faculty per- 
son on this campus. 

Annette is symbolic as the opportunity for us 

to be FOR something at a time when loo many of 
us are AGAINST. 

Our own Free Press Commitee was born 
of the necessity to protect freedom from re- 
pression of student expression. The Commit- 
tee should rise to the defense of Annette by 
actively soliciting contributions to assist in 
her fight for freedom. 
Help Annette Buchanan! 

A Freedom Fig! iter 

More Ballyhoo 

Dear Sirs: 

In Massachusetts the suggestion has been made 
that UMass is off limits for political exploitation. 

In Oregon the suggestion has been made that 
police detecting is inferior to a lady reporter's. 

At this University, students recently fended-off 
the first thrust of an attack on the freedom of 
their communications media. To some hard-boiled 
students, however much they disagreed, it was 
not too surprising to hear the "pols"' deny the 
"professionalism" of student journalism. 

Yet, out in Oregon, Miss Buchanan, affi- 
liated with a student newspaper and charged 
with contempt of court, is actually defending 
professional journalists and the commercial 
press more so than her Daily Emerald by 
maintaining her confidences. 
The Free Press Committee not too long ago 
called down upon all the claims to which journal- 
ism believes itself entitled: "A free press and a 
free society rise and fall together," etc. 

Rather than seeing some sort of amusing para- 
dox, I think we might (at least) reflect upon the 
fact that both are situations asserting that all 
journalism must be accorded freedoms and per- 
rogatives (such as mistakes, such as keeping 
sources confidential), and its own management-

Commencement Guests 
Spur Student Protest 

Home-wreckers At UMass 

Students carried their protests 
against the war in Vietnam right 
up to commencement this year 
walking out on Secretary of De- 
fense Robert McNamara is he 
spoke at graduation ceremonies 
at Amherst College and New 
York University. 

But few of the people in- 
volved in the exercises cri- 
ticized the studenis and even 
McNamara later told news- 
men that he was "delighted 
at the orderliness shown by 
the protesting students." 
At the University ot California 
at Berkeley, the school that put 
the student protest movement on 
the front pages, Chancellor Ro- 
ger W. Heyns told graduates 
that they would be better as a 
result of it. 

"Somewhere alor.^ the line 
there is an institution of which 
you are a part city, slate, re- 
gion, and nation, sureiy, but also 
a church, a school district, or 
whatever — and you ave obliged 
by your training to concern your- 
self with its effective function- 

"It is my confident belief 
that as a result of our tur- 
bulent times together, both 
from the anguish and an- 
xieties of disruption and 
from the pleasure of partici- 
pation hi the restoration, 
this group goes forth from 
this campus with special sen- 
sitivity, special competence, 
and special commitment to 
the tasks of responsible 
membership and leadership." 
Taking a darker view was 
John A. Hannah, president of 
Michigan State Univers'ty, who 

said he had seen some "weird 
performances" by students who 
like to "parade and perform." 

Some students have made the 
"arrogant assumption" that be- 
cause they "were born with 
brains they are chosen by Pro- 
vidence to make careers of cri- 
ticism," Hannah said at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland commence- 

Back at his own univer- 
sity, Hannah saw police, Se- 
cret Service men, and anti- 
war demonstrators engage in 
a pushing match before Vice 
President Hubert Humphrey 
mounted the platform to de- 
liver the commencement ad- 

Some of the 75 demonstrators 
charged that police initiated the 
melee, and several students have 
filed charges against Lansing 
police officers. 

During his speech, Vice Presi- 
ident Humphrey termed the dem- 
onstrators "a source of strength 
for the country." 

At Princeton, President 
Robert E. Goheen said it was 
part of the business of a uni- 
versity to "stir up commo- 
tion in ideas; one of the rea- 
sons for attending a univer- 
sity is to take part in such a 
commotion . . . 

"Just as it is silly for the par- 
ents to try to protect a child 
from the rough boys on the next 
block and better in the long run 
for him to suffer a bloody nose 
or two, so in the realm of ideas 
it is better to let the mind sally 
forth, even if some previous pre- 
conceptions suffer a mauling." he 

The old and the new. The new Southwest Residence Area Complex frames the destruction ot the 
County Circle norms, long-time home of married students and Stockbridge students. Most of llie 
displaced married students will be going to the Lincoln Apartments, although there are many more 
married couples than there are apartments. 

The destruction of these dorms heralds the advent of a new highway, running around the perip- 
hery of the campus which will separate parkin? areas from the inner campus. (See l T RC article, 
page 1) 


STANFORD, Calif— Late last 
month Stanford University stu- 
dents elected a "radical" student 
body president. 


By now, most of you fresh- 
men have had it up to here 
with advice. But there are a 
few things your parents, teach- 
ers, the Administration, or any 
book on UMass. life cannot tell 

First comes academics. Never 
forget you are here to get good 
grades. While there are a few 
courses where you have to do 
real homework as in high school 
most courses are "reading cour- 
ses." This means that you have 
to know something on only 
three days — the day of the first 
exam, second exam, and final. 
Knowing anything on other 
days is just a waste of energy. 

It takes a bit of practice to 
master the all-night cram ses- 
sion, called the "all-nighter." 
Perhaps you freshman should 
allow two days before an exam 
for study during this first sem- 

Helpful aids in making it 
through an all-nighter are a 
friend to keep you awake, loads 
of food and coffee, and perhaps 
a mild drug, such as some as- 
pirin mashed up in your orange 
juice. Never try a new drug the 
night before an exam, since 
your body may react to it in 

strange ways. For example, tak- 
ing an exam after taking LSD 
for the first time could put you 
at a distinct disadvantage. 

How much to do for a course? 
If a professor's lectures say the 
same thing as the book, you 
can choose between reading or 
going to class. If a teacher lec- 
tures on different material than 
is covered in the text, scouting 
around as described above will 
reveal what he considers Impor- 
tant and will test on (rule no. 
one of college life: learn only 
what you are reasonably sure 
you will be tested on). 

If a professor takes attend- 
ance during lecture and does 
not follow the book, it is a safe 
bet that he considers his lec- 
tures sacred. In this case, learn 
your notes "cold" and itfUIgtt* 
ate them in the blue book (you 
write the answers in it) with a 
paragraph saying all other theo- 
ries are wrong and your pro- 
fessor's theory is the onfly truth. 

Now that all you freshmen 
are getting 4.0's. we can turn 
to the social life. Get acquaint- 
ed early with the favorite UMass 
sport of hatching. No, It does not 
mean come out of your shell. 
It means sitting for a minimum 

Primaries (her. Surprise Tie 

The primary election last night 
resulted in a tie for second place 
on the third floor of Gorman. 

In what was described as a 
heavy turnout on that floor, Paul 
Achlosburg had the highest num- 
ber of votes cast — «7, — which as- 
sured him of a berth on the final 
election ballot coming up next 

Not so fortunate, however, 
were David Kerringan and Peter 
Wright who both ended up with 
identical votes of 17. Although 
no provision had been made for 
a tie of this nature, observers 
predicted it would be cleared up 
by final time. 

On the second floor of Dickin- 
son, Ann "Mac" McGunnigle and 
Marcia Lambert polled 18 and 
seven votes respectively. They 
will be in contention on Tues- 
day's ballot. Ousted in last 
night's primaries were Patricia 
Buckeley and Ann Drysdale. 

On the fourth floor of Dickin- 
son, Donna Woodsworth and 
Noreen Dolan polled the most 
votes — 10 and 7 — moving on 
to the primaries, while Merrie 
Klopp trailed with five. 

In contrast to Gorman, the 
turnout for Dickinson was very 
light, with only 35 out of 88 
eligible women voting. 

of three hours each day in the 
restaurant of the Student Union. 
Watching the world go by. 

Staring not only is polite in 
the Hatch; it is mandatory. 
Every person who walks by gets 
the once-over at least. Adding 
sparkle to this game is the 
practice of making comments 
about the person going by loud 
enough so the victim can over- 
hear them. 

If you are keeping score, one 
point if the victim blushes, two 
if she spills her coke, three If 
the cleanup ladies report you 
for obscenity. 

During the regular schoolyear, 
seating arrangements in the 
Hatch are more formal than a 
state dinner, but things are in- 
formal in the summer. Sit where 
you wish now, but be sure to 
find out next fall or winter 
when you return what section 
of the Hatch you can safely sit 
in. You would hate to wander 
into enemy territory, and the 
Administration frowns upon 
gang wars between sections of 
the Hatch. 

Finally, there is drinking. You 
have four years to become the 
famed UMass lush, so do not 
try to attain that status the 
first time you see beer. There 
is nothing more "freshman" 
than to have to be brought back 
to the? dorm by four buddies. 
And the point of all this advice 
is to turn you from a freshman 
to a first-class UMie. 

David Victor Harris, a tall, 
mustached student, bred in 
the ideas of Paul Goodman, a 
Student Non-Violent Coordi- 
nating Committee member, 
an adamant foe of the Viet- 
nam War, a Free Speech 
Movement advocate, and an 
outspoken critic of fraterni- 
ties, captured the presidency. 
Harris' win by a vote of 2,414 
to 1349, in the largest turn- 
out ever for an election, 
stunned the community and 
his opponent — a moderate 
fraternity man. 

How did Harris win? Certainly 
his ideas are foreign to most col- 
lege students. Stanford is prob- 
ably considered a conservative 
rather than a liberal institution. 

Stanford Daily editor Jon 
Roise wrote that Harris won be- 
cause, "his candid and outspoken 
style was for many, a welcome 
relief to the usual drivel of stu- 
dent politics. 

"This candidate, with his 
long hair and articulate cri- 
ticism, touched a raw nerve. 
He bit upon the one area in 
which all students of the 
University, activists and 
athletes alike, are affected:

Roise quoted a fraternity man, 
who supported Harris despite his 
criticism of the Greek system, as 
saying, "'All the other candidates 
sounded exactly alike; he was the 
only one with something new to 
say. All the other candidates 
would spend time rebutting his 
points, while he would just talk 

Harris admits he is a "radical," 
but "in the sense that radical 
means getting to the roots of 
things." That is why he got Into 
the presidential race. 

"Originally, we ruled out the 
idea of winning. Our intention 
was to make the rest of the can- 
didates speak to the important 
issues," he said. 

During the campaign, how- 
ever, by talking about such 
things are the abolishment 
of grades, creation of a stu- 
dent-run experimental col- 
lege, and allowing seats for 
students on the board of 
trustees, Harris established 
himself as the symbol of 
radical reform.

ground with which he says he 
entered college.

Your Spare Tire Can 
Prevent A Drowning 

CATES — Seven New England Newspaper Fel- 
lows, the first In a two-year-old fellowship 
program for New England Newspaper men 
and women, received certificates marking com- 
pletion of their studies last Friday night at the 
University. From the left are, Thomas W. Blee- 
zarde of Pittsfield, county bureau chief of the 
BERKSHIRE EAGLE; David C. Langzettel, 
city hall reporter of the PORTLAND (Maine) 
PRESS - HERALD; Edward McHugh, editorial 
writer of the WORCESTER TELEGRAM, Dr. 

Arthur Musgrave, former Nieman Fellow in 
Journalism and director of the University's 
journalism program; Miss Claudette Durocher, 
city hall reporter of the NASHUA (N.H.) 
TELEGRAPH; Brian McNiff, State House re- 
porter for the WORCESTER TELEGRAM - 
GAZETTE; Lester Nelson, reporter for the 
SPRINGFIELD UNION; and Gerry Molina, 
reporter for the NEWBURYPORT DAILY 
NEWS. Louis M. Lyons, a Unlvreslty trustee 
spoke at the graduation exercises, and Pro- 
vost Tippo awarded the certificates. 

This year some 6000 Ameri- 
cans will drown, three fourths of 
them at public places, but many 
can be saved by articles common- 
ly available at the scene. Mrs. 
Sue M. Gerard explains how in a 
June Reader's Digest article, 
"You Spare Tire Can Prevent a 

Roll a spare tire into the wa- 
ter, and, even with the heavy 
steel wheel in the center, it will 
rise to the surface and float. The 
drowning swimmer — or swim- 
mers—can hang onto it. If every- 
one keeps his shoulders under 
water, the tire will support six or 
seven persons. 

That tire is such a good life 
preserver that if you swim where 
no lifeguard is watching, you 
should loosen the lug that holds 
the tire in your car, so that it 
will be ready for use. Then, if a 
swimmer gets into trouble, push 
the tire to him. 

Various other objects can be 

used in a similar way. If you 
have a gallon-size Thermos jug, 
empty it; replace the lid, then 
toss the jug to a tired swimmer. 
Any large container with a tight- 
fitting lid makes a good float. 

A foam-plastic picnic basket is 
extremely buoyant. Other float- 
able and potentially lifesaving 
objects include air mattresses, 
foam-rubber chaise pads, beach 
balls, even wooden tables ?.rid 
benches — and of course, lite 
jackets, inflated toy floats and 
inner tubes. At your own pool or 
beach provide simple equipment. 

In 26 years as a swimming in- 
structor at Christian College, 
Columbia, Mo., Mrs. Gerard has 
taught thousands of persons to 
swim. An expert in water safe- 
ty, she has trained 1100 senior 
lifesavers, and 95 of her former 
pupils are swimming and lifesav- 
ing teachers. The article is con- 
densed from Family Safety, a 
publication of the National Safe- 
ty Council. 


(Continued from page 3) 
had to think of things in my own 
terms and I found the terms so- 
ciety had supplied me with for 
years were far from my own," he 

Calling himself an "artistic so- 
cialist," he lists his heroes as 
Staughton Lynd, Bob Parris and 
Norman Thomas. He has worked 
in Mississippi, and after gradua- 
tion, intends to apply for con- 
scientious objector status. Har- 
ris, 20, is a Social Thought ma- 

"I do believe American so- 
coiety is sick," he says. "In- 
dividuals within the society 
have stopped looking at 
themselves, considering 

themselves in relation to the 
rest of humanity." 

Harris perceives a "paternal 
attitude" in most university ad- 
ministrators that makes them 
unsympathetic to student de- 
mands for equality. 

"Virtually all of them are 
staid; their thoughts about edu- 
cation have stagnated in their 
own perspective," he says, al- 
though he does believe Stanford 
has some good administrators. 

Harris shares the tenacious 
commitment of the student radi- 
cal to reform and is willing to 
use force to achieve it. 

"One begins with the obli- 
gation of approaching ad- 
ministrators and asking 
them to work with us in 
building a better model of 
education, and if that's im- 
possible due to their ap- 
proach to both students and 
education, then one has the 
obligation to push them into 
a position of openness so 
that a meaningful change 
can take place." 

He denies adhering to a nega- 
tive pnilosophy or a rebellion 
against authority for its own 
sake. Rather, he speaks in terms 
of models which he proposes as 
something to work towards. 

"When one gets involved 
in social criticism, there is 
always the danger of becom- 

ing negative, but I think the 
first st«ip to affirmation Is 
negation," he says. 

His plans for next year include 
having rtudent government play 
a significant role in prodding tne 
administration into reform 
measures. He hopes his govern- 
ment "will create a' whole new 
tenor among the students." 

Harris says he will try to 
make student government 
autonomous from the univer- 
sity. (Such a proposal for a 
student government free of 
all administrative control re- 
cently failed at the Univer- 
sity of California, Berkeley.) 
Additionally, he plans to push 
tor structural changes within an 
atmosphere of community dis- 
cussion in order to make suiv 
students "know how things are 
run by the administration." 

"I'm not an atom bomb," lie 
says. "I'm just a human being. 
I'm not trying to blow up the 
university. I'm just trying to 
make people think about what 
they really want and to help 
them get it "

A spokesman for the Office of Education said 
that students were decided upon so that the 
agency could put into the field the largest pos_ 
sible investigative force on the smallest possible 

Faced with manpower shortages last year, the 
agency concentrated on obtaining paper compli- 
ances and was unable to check out complaints 
against school districts that had signed the com- 
pliance form. In doing this, the agency was heav- 
ily criticized by civil rights leaders for failing 
to fallow up complaints. 

In addition to the students, the office has 
hired 15 professors and school officials to 
work on the compliance staff. David S. See- 
ley, assistant commissioner in charge of the 
desegregation efforts, said that the summer 
help from students and professors would 

mean that the agency can field about 175 
investigators during the summer. 

Seeley said a major target will be to find out 
whether Negro children in the South have really 
been given a "free choice" of attending a pre- 
viously all-white schoofl. Some investigators also 
will go to school districts in the North. 

Where Investigators find that free choice 

plans are not working, school districts will 

be asked to reopen registration or take other 

steps, Seeley said. 

The student compliance officers will also make 
recommendations about faculty desegregation or 
the need to close small, isolated schools main- 
tained solely for Negro students. 

Seeley said that in addition to examining the 
records furnished by the local school officials, 
the law students will interview parents to find 
out whether they have been fully informed about 
desegregation plans.

Heads or Tails Breaks Tie; 
Summer Gov't On Its Way 

Summer Reporter 

A last -minute flip of the coin broke the sur- 
prise tie late last Thursday night as the Sum- 
mer Student Government kicked off its first 
year here with the primary elections. 

The primary, designed to narrow the field to 

An interesting note Is that 
Wright and Kerrigan have 
known each other since little 
league baseball days. The two, 

both swing-shifters, double dat- 
ed at Dedham High School; and 
Kerrigan himself campaigned 
for Wright when the latter ran 
for president of his high school 

Schlosburg, also a frosh, went 
to Boston Latin School in Bos- 
ton where he was a classmate 
of Wright's cousin. Although 
the two families got to know 
each other at graduation, 
Schlosburg didn't get to meet 
Wright himself. 

When they had settled down 
to the life of a swing-shifter, 
they found themselves living 
across the hall from one an-

ernment — a function which will 
encompass nearly as many of 
the areas as does the regular 
academic year's student govern- 

A 28 year old, ex-Army junior 
himself, Gurwitz, who has been 
active in the Student Senate for 
the past two years, feels that 
students should have a much 
deeper commitment in every 
phase of their educational en- 

Although deep student com- 
mitment in their own lives can 
oftimes lead to tense and flam- 
mable situations as was (and 
is) the case in Berkely, he sees 
much more potential good com- 
ing from more "formal" bodies 
such as student government 
with marches and sit-ins as re- 
gretable and unfortunate last- 
ditch efforts. 

Regarding today's elections, 
Gurwitz is pleased with the pri- 
mary turnout and forsees a big- 
ger and more knowledgable vot- 
ing body of students for today. 

Civil Rights Activists 

Yale Chaplain Eyes 
Religion And Civil Rights 

Yale University Chaplain Rev. William S. Coffin, Jr., theologian 
and civil rights activist, will lecture on "Religion and Civil Rights'" 
at UMass. Wed., June 29. 

The 8 p.m. lecture, in Bowker Auditorium, is the second of eight 
such lectures in the 1966 Summer Arts Program at the University. 
It is open to the public without charge. 

In addition to his duties as chaplain and pastor of the Church of 
Christ at Yale, Rev. Coffin has been active in interfaith and inter- 
racial programs, thePeace Corps, and civil rights. During an exten- 
sive tour of the Far East two years ago, he lectured at universities 
in northern and central India. As a consultant and advisor to the 
Peace Corps in the Summer of 1961. he organized and became the 
first director of the Peace Corps Field Training Center in Puerto Rico. 

In May, 1961, he was one of seven "Freedom Riders" arrested in 
Montgomery, Ala., after a protest of local bus and restaurant segrega- 
tion laws. Later that same year, at a speech to Yale students about the 
civil rights experiences in the South, Rev. Coffin said this about his 
views on the church's role in civil rights: "It was precisely when the 
voice of the church was silent and withdrawn that Jim Crowism 
established itself in this country." 

For such active interest and participation in the nation's social 
problems, he was one of the 100 men in America under 40 years old 
selected by Life magazine, in the fall of 1962 as outstanding in "the 
take-over generation." 

After service with the Army in 
Europe during World War II, he 
entered Yale and was graduated 
as a government major in 1949. 
He was awarded a Bachelor of 
Divinity degree in 1956 by Yale 
Divinity School. 

Rev. Coffin's talk is one in a 
series of lectures, art shows, 
films, plays and concerts design- 
ed to give UMass students and 
the Amherst community a bal- 
anced presentation of the arts 
this summer. Programs will be 
offered now through Aug. 25 on 
the UMass campus. 

DeGrenier Bids UMass Adieu 
For Post At Salem State College 

After attending nearly every 
Student Senate meeting, read- 
ing and comprehending every 
R.S.O. constitution in operation, 
having a hand in changing the 
R.S.O. Committee system, and 
finishing his Master's work on 
the side, the R.S.O. Business 
Manager, Armand DeGrenier is 
leaving today for Salem State 
College, where he will be direc- 
tor of the new Salem State Stu- 
dent Union. 

Formerly an Assltant Building 
Supervisor for the S.U., the Holy 
Cross grad took over a summer 
internship in the Union three 
years ago in order to evaluate 
the various R.S.O. constitutions 
and their functions. 

The then Building Supervisor, 
Mr. Scott, and the R.S.O. Busi- 
ness Manager, Edward Buck, 
were very impressed with De- 
Grcnier's work that summer and 
when Buck moved to another 
position, Armand DeGrenier was

advent of an unforeseen tie between Peter 
Wright and Daniel Kerrigan, tied with 18 votes

The coin flip shot Kerrigan into an uncon- 
tested second place. He will oppose Schlosburg 
in tonight's election.

delegates and other gutats from 
all over the U. S. 

"The World Food Supply" is 
the conference theme. The ma-

Emerald Editor's Trial 
Continues Undecided 


A college newspaper editor 
went before a circuit judge in 
Eugene, Ore., yesterday and may 
be held in contempt of court for 
protecting the anonymity of her 
news sources. 

No Jury 

Annette Buchanan, 20 years 
old, is the editor of The Oregon 
Daily Emerald, published a\ the 
University of Oregon campus in 
Eugene. She has been cited by 
Judge Edward Leavy to show 
cause Monday why she should 
not be held in contempt. He has 
refused to hold a jury trial. 

Miss Buchanan, whose home 
is in Seattle, faces the charge 
because of her refusal to follow 
Judge Leavy's order that she di- 
vulge to the county grand jury 
the names of seven fellow uni- 
versity students who told her 
they had used marijuana and 
knew of others who had used it. 

Her maximum sentence could 
be $300 and six months in jail. 
But at the conclusion of the in- 
itial sentence, she could again 
be asked to give the information 
and punished again if she re- 

Promised Anonymity 

Miss Buchanan became editor 
of the student newspaper May 
1, and on May 24 the Emerald 
carried her interviews with the 
seven, whose identity she prom- 
ised not to divulge. 

District Attorney William 
Frye, himself a journalism grad- 
uate of the University of Ore- 
gon, once was news editor of the 

Mr. Frye said in a telephone 
interview that he felt Miss Bu- 
chanan's information was im- 
portant to establish investiga- 
tive lines in drug use around the 
campus. He said the law did not 
give her the right to withhold 
information when a grand jury 
demanded it. 

Two weeks ago Miss Buchan- 
an was brought before Judge 
Leavy, who ordered her to an- 
swer the grand jury. She would 

Code of Ethics 

Her attorney, Arthur Johnson, 
argued that she should not be 
required to breach her code of 
professional ethics, that she was 
paid $60 a month as editor of 
the student paper and therefore 
was covered by a state law ex- 
empting officials from reveal- 
ing communications made to 

He also argued that the grand 
jury had no right to ask her the 
questions, and that she was not 
represented by counsel when she 
was before the grand jury. 

Major Argument 

But his major argument 
which will be repeated Mon- 
day is that the Oregon and 
Federal Constitutions' mis- 
sion of freedom of speech 
would be abridged if Miss 
Buchanan Is required to 
identify her sources. 

The court must weigh the 
right to silence that Miss Bu- 
chanan has against the demand 
that she speak the names in or-

Mr. Johnson has argued that 
the prosecutor should be re- 
quired to make a showing that 
Miss Buchanan's answers would 
be of sufficient value to society 
to justify overriding her right to 
be silent if she chooses.

Personal interest on the part of teachers chal- 
lenges gifted high school students most in the 
classroom,, a recent University of Massachusetts 
survey of 17 comprehensive secondary schools 
in Massachusetts indicates. 

In a study supported by the UMass Research 
Council, Dr. Ronald H. Frederickson, assistant 
, i ofessor in the School of Education, sought 
opinions from 816 high-performing high school 
students and 417 teachers. All instructional areas 
were included in the study. 

After personal interest by teachers, the super- 
ior students quizzed listed six other teacher 
qualities that they felt made courses more chal- 

The qualities, in order of importance, were in- 
volving the student in the classroom, making a 
variety of different assignments, maintaining 
high requirements, listening to students' views, 
lecturing judiciously and providing freedom for 
students to follow individual interests. 

Dr. Frederickson commented: "Generaliza- 
tions are difficult among the subject areas be- 
cause of the variance within and among schools, 
but social science courses seemed generally to 

draw the lowest ratings among the students 

He surveyed talented and high performance 
students in business education and industrial 
arts as well as in the traditional academic cour- 
ses, explaining that he feels "we have generally 
been too narrow in focusing on the talented stu- 
dent just existing in the major academic sub- 

A compiled report of all the practices used 
by teachers and reported challenging by su- 
perior students has been sent to each teacher 
who took part in the study, according to Dr. 
Frederickson. "It is hoped that when a class- 
room teacher or a school system sees what is 
being done in similar schools they might be en- 
couraged to try some of the procedures also," 
he noted. 

Dr. Frederickson is a specialist in research 
and guidance among gifted high school students 
who worked two and a half years in a state- 
wide program for guidance of gifted high school 
students in Wisconsin. His 17-school survey in 
Massachusetts is a continuation of that work.

Free Press Com. 
Meets Thursday 

The Free Press Committee 
has arisen from its summer dol- 
drums. It is having an Annette 
Buchanan meeting this Thurs- 
day night at 9:30, a little more 
than a month after the Free 
Press Comm. formed- -on anoth- 
er Thursday night. 

With such a short history and 
so much hoopla surrounding the 
committee, the best description 
of the meeting is that if an in- 
dividual is concerned with the 
Annette Buchanan trial in Ore- 
gon, then he will be interested 
in the meeting. 

The Buchanan trial, which ap- 
pears to be aimed at forcing a 
journalist to reveal his sources 
if the court is interested, is one 
in which the Free Press Com- 
mittee feels a vested interest. 

Meeting place has not yet been

University of Wisconin 
Censures Selective Service 

Letters to the Editor 


(CPS) — The Student Senate 
at the University of Wisconsin 
has passed a resolution very sim- 
ilar to the demands of a campus 
committee on the University and 
the Draft as a sit-in in the 
school's administration building 
goes into its third day. 

The resolution was passed by 
a 20 to 11 vote and asks that the 
university have nothing to do 
with the Selective Service Sys- 

Specifically, the resolution de- 
mands that the faculty issue a 
statement saying: 

• the present Selective Service 
arrangement is inequitable; 

• the use of grades and class 
standings to determine who will 
be drafted places an unfair pres- 
sure on the students and fac- 

• the university is an academ- 
ic community and should not 
cooperate in any way with the 
Selective Service System. 

The resolution said that stu- 
dents should handle their own 
relations with their local draft 
boards and the university should 
not act as an agent. The resolu- 
tion did suggest that it would 
be proper for the university to 
furnish the draft boards with 
any information a student spe- 
cifically requested be sent. 

Speaking in favor of the reso- 
lution, in addition to members 
of the senate, were five mem- 
bers of the ad hoc committee 
on the University and the 


Wisconsin Gov. Warren Know- 
les issued a statement calling 
the incident a "campus matter" 
and said that no state action 
would be taken. The governor's 
statement was in reply to a re- 
quest from a former state sen- 
ator, Frederick Marcus, that 
state troopers be sent in to 
"clear out the building." 

Madison City Police are not 
on the scene, and the only 
police around are University of 
Wisconsin campus police. Chan- 
cellor Robben Fleming said the 
building would be cleared by 
campus police if the demon- 
strators did try to close down 
the building to university em- 
ployees, but otherwise they 
would be left alone. 

On several occasions the stu- 
dents around the building have 
been pelted with eggs thrown 
from passing cars, and the 
campus police have been in- 
structed to provide the demon- 
strators with adequate protec- 

Some 2,000 students gathered 
in the library mall and the area 
surrounding the administration 
building Tuesday night follow- 
ing the student senate meeting. 
The rally lasted for several 
hours despite a heavy rain. 

The sit-in began after Univer- 
sity President Fred Harvey Har- 
rington said that he could not 
accept the demands of the com- 
mittee that had been presented 
to him in a letter on Friday. 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

My sympathy is aroused by 
the unfortunate position of An- 
nette Buchanan of the Universi- 
ty of Oregon student newspaper. 
However, I feel that the basic is- 
sue here goes beyond Annette 
Buchanan herself. 

Recently many newspapers 
spoke out indignantly about the 
refusal of private citizens near 
the scene of a brutal attack to 
"get involved." Now the State in 
this case will have to decide 
where the "duty of being in- 
volved" stops and starts. 

Shouldn't the press itself, col- 
lectively and individually, take 
a firm stand in this matter, and

Amherst, Massachusetts 
Dear Mr. Editor: 

The Liberals from American 
academia and Capitol Hill are 
getting nowhere in their criti- 
cism of President Johnson's 
Vietnam policy because they fail 
to appreciate its objective. 

The critics claim not to see 
how the bombing of northern 
Vietnam renders any easier 
Washington's avowed diplomatic 
efforts to initiate negotiations; 
they are distressed by the re- 
buff to negotiation "feelers" 
from the North; they are con- 
fused by the Administration's 

Hershey's Draft Formula— 
Not a Hit with the House 

Some House members who want the nation's 
draft law overhauled apparently see a national 
manpower pool as the best answer to cries of 
inequity and discrimination. 

"It has proved unworkable in 
And he is against any national 

Uniform System 

This is closely followed by the demand to es- 
tablish a uniform system for deferments. 

"There's not a damn thing fair about the 
present system," says Rep. Lucien N. Nedzi, 
D-Mich., a member of the House Armed Services 
Committee now holding hearings on the opera- 
tion of the Selective Service System. 

Questioning by committee members in hear- 
ings this week indicate at least some see an 
answer in a national pool of men who are 
classified as 1-A and eligible for the draft. 

It would work like this: Whenever a youth 
is given this status, his file would go into a 
general pool and draft calls would be filled 
from this through some sort of central system, 
rather than by local draft boards as at present. 

Advocates contend this would make sure all 
of the first priority eligibles would be drafted 
before any other category, eliminating selec- 
tion of husbands by some boards which have 
run out of single men while non-married youths 
registered with other boards still are available. 

A Nobody 

"If you're 1-A you're a nobody," claims Rep. 
Alvin E. O'Konski, R-Wis., another committee 
member who has charged only the sons of poor 
parents are drafted. 

Rep. Frank Horton, R-N.Y., terms current 
methods a patchwork quilt and suggests modern 
data-processing equipment to break what he 
calls "the sluggishness of registrant processing." 

Rep. William F. Ryan, D-N.Y., who has asked 
for a national commission to explore the pos- 
sibility of a universal training system offering 
social programs as an alternate to military 

Hers hey and States 

Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, for 25 years direc- 
tor of selective service, in three days of testi- 
mony this week stoutly opposed any changes 
in the current law. 

He said a lottery system of selection is un- 

workable . . . 
World War II.' 

"The local boards know best," he contended, 
though he advocated that the armed services 
lower physical and mental standards to tap the 
2 million youths classified 1-Y, not acceptable 
to serve now but acceptable in a national emer- 

2S— A OK 

Hershey strongly backs educational defer- 
ments on the under-graduate level, but wants 
a new, hard look at graduate students. 

Nedzi, O'Konski and other congressmen favor 
some sort of national 1-A pool, with orders for 
induction to come from a lottery type system. 

They assert such a pool is far more equitable 
than the current system of drawing from widely 
differing draft board districts. 

"Some boards are drafting husbands, some 
aren't, some defer graduate students, some 
don't," Rep. Richard Schweiker, R-Pa., contends 
and he thinks the whole deferment system is 
in a mess. 

Hershey endorses the suggestion of Rep. 
Charles E. Bennett, D-Fla., that the armed 
services taken in marginal registrants and up 
grade them to minimum standards. 

But he opposes any alternate to military serv- 
ice such as in the Peace Corps, social welfare 
programs or conservation corps. 

The frequently mentioned "uniformity" of 
selection caused Hershey to comment that there 
is no such thing as uniformity, in any aspect of 

He told the committee those who use the 

term are really saying "If I'm going in the 

army, it's not uniform. If you go in, I can 
tolerate that." 

Hershey will be on hand when the congress- 
men testify in case any non-committee members 
want to ask him questions. 

Wouldn't Mind It 

Chairman L. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C, has raised 
the possibility a review of the draft's operation 
might become a yearly, standard procedure for 
his committee.

Doesn't Want Negotiation— 

equivocal stance on dealing with 
the Viet Cong, and by the Pres- 
ident's reluctance to endorse in 
toto the 1954 Geneva agree- 

Evidently it has not oc- 
curred to these Liberals that 
the Administration doesn't 
seem to be promoting nego- 
tiations because it doesn't 
want negotiations. After all, 
any non-military settlement 
of the Vietnam conflict that 
will leave the United States 
looking even vaguely like a 
supporter of democracy will 
have to provide for elections, 
as did the Geneva accords — 
free, internationally admin- 
istered elections throughout 
the entire country to decide 
not whether Vietnam is to 
be re-united (it was never 
divided), but to decide under 
what regime it is to be gov- 
erned. And such elections, in 
the view of those making 
current U. S. policy, would 
spell sure disaster: the end 
of American military occu- 
pation, and the confutation 
of that old saw about Com- 
munist governments never 
being freely brought to pow- 

For if 80*# of the Vietnamese 
people were about to vote for Ho 
Chi Minh in 1954, two years be- 
fore President Eisenhower felt 
compelled to abrogate the elec- 
tion provisions of the Geneva 
pact (Dwight D. Eisenhower, 
Mandate for Change, pg. 372), 
then today, after their exposure 
to American "humanitarian pa- 
ternalism" — i.e., the napalm on 
their villages, the wholesale "de- 
foliation" programs (pogroms?), 
the gas warfare, the • concentra- 
tion camps, the "interrogation" 
by torture of suspected Viet 
Cong sympathizers, the storming 
of pagodas, etc. — perhaps in any 
new free ballot 98 or 997r of all 
Vietnamese stand to vote for the 
father of their land as against 
whomever we dredge up from 
among our boot-lickers. 

Rather than persist in of- 
fering the Johnson Adminis- 
tration advice on how to a- 
chieve the negotiations It has 
no intention of allowing to 
come to pass, the intelligent- 
sia, the moral leadership, the 

underanged ought now to en- 
deaver to remonstrate the 
obvious ultimate purpose of 
American involvement in 
Vietnam, and the sheer hyp- 
ocrisy of Johnsonian advo- 
cates and apologists. For it 
must by this time be plain 
that that purpose is to con- 
tinue deliberately and sys- 
tematically to escalate our 
war. very soon bombing Ha- 
noi-Haiphong in earnest, un- 
til China is forced to, or ap- 
pears to intervene, and the 
Strangeloves feel they have 
plausible justification for 
proceeding with the devasta- 
tion of, at the least, the Chi- 
nese nuclear capacity. And 
thence cometh the Armaged- 

In the meantime, to demon- 
strate unmistakably how quests 
for liberation will be drowned in 
rivers of blood, the courageous 
American war machine will go 
on decimating every Vietnamese 
community in which people cling 
to the notion that they have a 
right to be free (qf us). In the 
meantime, American occupation 
bases will gird for the upcoming 
adventure with the Communist 
giant. And in the meantime I 
will implore the rest of human- 
ity: "Understand, Lyndon John- 
son perpetuates atrocity not in 
behalf of me or the good folk 
of my country. Ours is indeed 
a house divided."

Much of the furor has cen-

college students, a practice 
backed by Hershey. He also 
proposes taking those who have 
received any deferment after 
they reach the draft age liabil-

this is possible because a man

Journalist Discusses Trade, Lauds Reporters 

by PAT PETOW, Summer Reporter 

"Almost every day brings up something you 
never did before" was how journalist Edwin P. 
Young described his profession to an informal Uni- 
versity group. In the course of his talk, he paid 
particular attention to the present competition to 
daily newspapers from other media. 

Young, now general manager of The Provi- 
dence Journal-Bulletin, has spent nearly 40 years 
in newspaper work beginning with the Cornell 
Daily Sun. For three-quarters of his 20 years on 
the Baltimore Sun, he served as city editor. 

Drawing on his own experiences, Young lec- 
tured briefly to New England Newspaper Fellows, 
participating in a University program, and under- 
graduates, taking an article writing course, Mon- 
day, June 27. 

A Publisher's responsibilities are threefold, he 
said; those to the reader, to the reporting of news, 
and to providing a decent remuneration for the 

reporter and a fair return to the stockholder. 

News coverage in its quality and scope were repeatedly 
stressed as this "desk" man's concern. "His [the publisher's] 
prime concern is with the excellency of the product." In ex- 
plaining, the publisher's duty to the reader, Young called for 
readable, complete, and the best news reporting. 

He said he was distressed to find newspapers which do not 
do an adequate job of coverage. Getting the news can be done 
in only one way, he asserted, by getting enough reporters. 

"For my money, the reporter on the newspaper is the most 
important guy," the guy you depend on, he continued. 

Although his face showed that the warm afternoon and ven- 
tilation of Stockbridge House, Amherst's oldest (from the 
1700's), were less than comfortable, Young was completely at 
ease in bringing up the problems that publishing faces today 
from other media. 

The reporter, he said, is increasingly specializing due to the 
competition, especially of broadcasting. Even medium-sized, 
formerly provincial, papers have, for example, education and 

medicine and business and other writers. The 
newspaper must do what it can do best; for Young, 
this means background and interpretative stories. 
Television and radio can do spot news as well 
as the papers, he said. More strongly, he put it 
again, the beat and scoop are going out, "There 
are so many media now which can do it faster and 

Another area in which newspapers can counter 
the broadcasting-newsmagazine forces is in local 
news, often too trivial for air time, Young sug- 
gested. The former reporter and editor emphasized 
the need of newspaper stories which relate to the 
reader. He defended in this regard the well-writ- 
ten obituary, supplementing the paid death no- 

A good deal of Young's remarks on the "legion" 
of publishing problems, the other half of his pre- 
pared lecture, touched the business side. Sinking

4-H Clothing Conference A Success, 
Fetes Mrs. Lederle and Mrs. Volpe 

by MARSHALL NADAN, Summer Reporter 

Mrs. Volpe, the wife of the gov- 
ernor, came to the University on 
Monday evening to attend the 
Clothing Revue of the 1966 4-H 

A director of the 4-H Founda- 
tion, Mrs. Volpe arrived at 7:30 
at the Colonial Lounge in the 
Union where she was welcomed 
by Mrs. Lederle. The two ladies 
and their escort party then pro- 
ceeded to Bowker Auditorium 
where the Clothing Revue was 

The fifty girls in the Revue, 
who had been selected to rep- 
resent their counties in various 
fields of clothing design, were 
all wearing outfits they had de- 
signed and made themselves. 

Kathleen Yelinek of Agawam 
took first prize and will be the 
Massachusetts delegate to t h e 
National 4-H Club Congress. 
Runners-up were Nancy Syman- 
ski of Deerfield and Paula Ware 
of Berlin. 

Miss Yelinek captured the at- 
tention and admiration of the 
audience when she came out on 
stage with her dachsund Heidi, 
both attired in matching blue 

outfits. Afterwards, Miss Yeli- 
nek said that taking first prize 
"was the shock of my life." 

Mrs. Volpe, who takes a real 
interest in the work of the 4-H 
program, said that she was "a- 
mazed at the girl's talent in ma- 
king costume dresses and suits." 
It had not been learned until 
early Monday morning that she 
was definitely going to attend. 

The announcement caused 
brief concern over protocol. The 
awards had been scheduled to 
be presented by Mrs. Lederle. It 
was decided not to make any

The week long conference of 
older 4-H members is designed 
to provide training in leader- 
ship, to give the kids an oppor- 
tunity to see the University, to 
display their talents and to have 
a good tine. 4-H boys show 
their talent in science, mechan- 
ics, agriculture and other fields. 

In addition to the dress revue 
events of the week included var- 
ious speakers from the Com- 
monwealth Service Corps and a 

gala pageant last night in Bow- 
ker Auditorium. 

Today, the conference winds 
up with a report from three 
4-H members who were in 
Washington at Mrs. Johnson's 
National Youth Conference On 
Natural Beauty and Conserva- 

The 4-H girls at the confer- 
ence have been staying in Baker 
House, giving that dorm a change 
of scenery and an uplift it 
badly needed. 

What do the "swing shift" 
freshmen think of their univer- 
sity? Sounds like a loaded ques- 
tion but in a series of interviews 
with this year's "special group" 
the Summer Collegian discover- 
ed some interesting answers! 

Their first and major com- 
ment or rather complaint was 
their objection to being labeled 
"swing shifters" or a "special 
group". Most of those interview- 
ed expressed the hope that both 
terms would be forgotten when 
they returned In January to 
continue their college careers. 

They all agreed that classes 
during the summer are too long; 
especially on hot days. Pat Buc- 
kley and Pat Heil both of Emily 
Dickinson House agreed that 
"three hour labs in 90 degree 
weather are no fun". 

Another point of dissension 
between the summer freshmen 
and the University is the library 
and its summer closing hours. 
Ann Duggan of Worcester echo- 
ed the attitude of many of her 

classmates. "By the time you 
get out of a class at 5:20, eat, 
collect your books and journey 
to the library, it's almost time 
to leave!" she concluded. 

Aside from the academic 
sphere, the freshmen also levell- 
ed criticism at the social side of 
UMass. The consensus of opin- 
ion is that more dances and so- 
cial events should be planned to 
make up for the lack of frater- 
nity parties on the summer 

The pool at the Cage also Ir- 
ritated most of the freshmen In- 
terviewed. It seems that the op- 
en hours coincide with their 
class hours and the closed hours 
coincide with their open week- 
ends ! 

Only criticism from the fresh- 
men? No, not really. Their over- 
all opinion about UMass was 
summed up by Bob Potbin of 
Gorman House. "Sure it gets 
hot studying during the sum- 
mer, but for a chance at a 
good education its worth it!" 

New Art Form - ''Prune Flat" and 
"Untitled"- Experiment In 3 Dimensions 

Annette Found Guilty 
Lawyer Will Appeal 

EUGENE, Ore. — University of Oregon student editor Annette 
Buchanan was found guilty of contempt of court Tuesday and fined 
$300 for refusing to identify seven students she interviewed for a 
campus newspaper article on the use of marijuana. 

Circuit Judge Edward Leavy imposed the sentence after listen- 
ing to a plea for leniency for the 20-year-old managing editor of the 
Oregon Daily Emerald by her attorney, Arthur C. Johnson. 

Judge Leavy could have added a six-month prison term. 

District Attorney William Frye asked the judge to take into 
consideration in sentencing the fact that Miss Buchanan has made 
repeated statements for the press and television that she would con- 
tinue to refuse to answer the questions asked her during a Lane 
County grand jury investigation. 

Miss Buchanan had interviewed the students for a May 24 
article on the "pleasurable" effect of marijuana. 

In keeping with a promise made to the seven, she twice refused 
to identify them to the grand jury, even though she was under a 
court order to do so at her second appearance. 

Oregon law does not give a newsman the right to refuse to 
divulge confidential information. Twelve other states do. 

The district attorney said he is considering calling Miss Buchan- 
an back before the grand jury later this week and planned to ask 
her the same questions she refused to answer. 

At a press conference, Miss Buchanan said: "I am Just as deter- 
mined as ever never to tell the names." 

Johnson immediately said he would appeal Tuesday's decision.

Overseas Study 

Prompts Manual, 
Program Aids 

As an aid to the thousands 
of American students who wish 
to study abroad, the Institute of 
International Education has 
published a new edition of Un- 
dergraduate Study Abroad 
which describes programs spon- 
sored by U.S. colleges and uni- 
versities during the academic 
year and the summer. 

The dramatic growth of these 
programs is shown by the 100% 
increase in their number over 
the last three years from about 
150 to more than 300 programs. 
In 1950, there were only half- 
dozen junior year abroad pro- 

The current edition now lists 
208 group, supervised, or inde- 
pendent study programs for the 
academic year in various coun- 
tries; and 97 summer programs. 
The book, a standard reference 
directory, gives information on 
admissions requirements, costs, 
housing arrangements, academ- 
ic credits, travel opportunities, 
location, and other topics. 

Detailed program descriptions 
of more than 300 undergraduate 
study programs which appear in 
Undergraduate Study Abroad 
are based on a national sur- 
vey. Copies of the book are a- 
vailable for $2.75 from IIE, 809 
United Nations Plaza, New 
York. N.Y. 10017. 


Catholic, Protestant and Jewish leaders are in 
agreement on two points: Religion should be 
taught in the classroom objectively and for credit; 
and that students at UMass are, in general, indif- 
ferent to the religious opportunities provided by 

Rev. Mr. Cooper of the United Church of 
Christ, a member of the Congregational Church, 
says: "No credit is deserved if a course teaches 
dogma, but if the histories, theories and trends of 
religious thought are taught, the University will 
have on its hands a good addition." 

Assistant Chaplain 

Mr. Cooper serves as assistant chaplain of the 
United Christian Foundation and, though he has 
— mr^>fficiah con n e cti o n with th o Univ e rsi ty 
recognized by it. 

Concerning student attitudes toward religion, 
Mr. Cooper feels that "ethics and theology are 
taken more seriously by a few, and interest is 
picking up slightly, but the general trend is to- 
ward indifference." Part of this apathy, he as- 
serts, is due to the Church, in that it does not 
make itself attractive to the college-age popula- 

"The church does not reach the students; it 
doesn't answer their questions honestly and di- 
rectly," he declares. 

Congregational groups on this campus are not 
a success, according to Mr. Cooper, who describes 
student participation as only slight. He sees his 
most beneficial role to the student as an adviser 
and counselor. 

Rabbi Speaks 

Quig ley's Views 

Rev. Fr. Quigley of the Newman Center be- 
lieves the Center has made much progress in reach- 
ing out to and gathering the 4,000 Catholics on 
campus. Though most of these are Sunday church- 
goers, Quigley says, "We see about 3,000 of these 
regularly, and are quite satisfied with the pro- 
gress the Newman has made." 

Fr. Quigley agrees that academic, accredited 
courses on general religion would "be a good 
thing, seeing as a liberal education should include 
as many things as possible, especially such an enor- 
mous field as religious thought." 

Not so optimistic about student attitude toward 
religion, two Newman Club members agree that 
"most of the Catholics go to Mass on Sundays 
when they have to, and that's it." 

Student Views 

Paul Monfils, a sophomore zoology major, 
states that "some go to daily Mass, but most are 
apathetic" Reports Barbara Ploskey, a counselor 
in Webster Dormitory: "Religious discussion in the 
dormitories takes second place to sex and these 
discussions usually take place between freshman 
and sophomores." 

Both students, however, claim that religion 
plays a big part in the lives of everyone and 
should be taught as part of the curriculum. 

Rabbi Louis Ruchames, director of B'nai B'rith 
Hillel Foundation, describes most of the 1,100 
Jewish students on campus as "apathetic". 

"If an academic, accredited religion course 
were added to the University curriculum, and if 
it were taught objectively, it would certainly be 
an enriching experience and a good addition to the 
University," said Rabbi Ruchames. "Though it 
would be hard to keep it entirely generalized and 
objective," he adds. 

Kathleen Galloway, a senior psychology ma- 
jor, has this opinion: "Religion should be taught 
as part of man's cultural thought and nothing else. 
If this were taught as such, I would be very much 
interested in such a course." 

Rev. Mr. Scott, a member of the Episcopal 
-Chureh , giv e s t his-^asscssment: "The a tt itude^of 
students on campus is a combination of factors 
... a lack of concern for denominational structure 
and the failure of the church organizations to an- 
swer well the continual questioning of human 
values posed by the students." 

In general, he says, students there show a 
"definite lack of interest" in the church structure 
but there is an interest in the values represented 
by the church. "There is, however, a bare interest 
in church groups on campus," he said. 

Campus Crusade 

He reports the recently formed Campus Cru- 
sade for Christ movement: "They are interested 
in the personal commitment to God and are not 
concerned with social issues." 

The Campus Crusade for Christ is a non- 
denominational movement of students only, work- 
ing currently with members of the fraternities 
and sororities. Three post-graduate students are 
working with the program on the UMass campus. 

The general consensus of students seems to be 
an intellectual interest in religion and not an emo- 
tional one. The religious community apparently 
believes an academic, accredited course supplied 
by the University would stimulate that interest. 
No one was against such a move. 


The University of Massachusetts will receive 
$4,200 from the United States Public Health Ser- 
vice for a research project on permanence in mar- 
riage, Rep. Silvio O. Conte announced Tuesday. 

Principal investigator for the project will be 
Dr. George Levinger of the UMass psychology 

The project, titled "Factors Leading Toward 
Permanence in Marriage." in a study to deter- 
mine what factors lead to a lasting relationship 
between a man and a woman. One hundred stead- 
ily dating couples at the University have volun- 
teered to serve as subjects for the study.

State Budget Hassle 
Features Education Slash 

The state budget faces its 
crucial test in the Senate to- 
day, when the upper branch 
will be asked to accept a com- 
promise version of the general 
appropriation bill tor fiscal 1967 
worked out by a conference 
committee of the two branches. 
The budget moved another 
step closer to Governor Volpe's 
desk when the House, by voice 
vote with no debate, accepted 
the report, which will reduce 
the amount of the budget to 
$718 million. The conference 
committee recommended a to- 
tal reduction of $3.6 million 
from the $722 million budget 
approved by the Senate. 

Most of these reductions 
however, were in the area 
of Increased appropriations 
for education, adopted dur- 
ing debate on the floor of 
the Senate. Action today 

will reveal whether the 
Senate is willing to recede 
from these amendments, 
most of which were for the 
Division of State Colleges.

Students "Pass" or "Fail' 7 

The Amherst College Student 
Council has submitted a propos- 
al to the Committee on Educa- 
tional Policy which would allow 
juniors and seniors to take one 
course each semester for which 
they would receive a grade of 
either pass or fail. 

The purpose of the plan is to 
enable upperclassmen to take 
more difficult courses than they 
would normally take for fear of 
lowering their college average. 
The proposed plan follows: 

1. Juniors and Seniors may el- 
ect one course each semester for 
which they will receive a record- 
ed grade on their transcript of 
either pass or fail. 

2, This cours e must be outside 

tributional requirements. 

3. Before the beginning of the 
semester, the student must indi- 
cate whether he wishes to do this 
or not. If he does, he will still 
receive numerical grades for all 
work done in the course, and a 
final numerical grade will be 
sent to the registrar. 

If the final numerical grade is 
60 or above, the registrar will 
record a pass for the course on 
the student's transcript; if be- 
low 60, he will record a fail. 

4. A student will receive full 
credit for this course. 

5. If a student elects to re- 
ceive pass or fail in a course, this 
course will not be counted in 
computing his college average.

English Prof. Langland Is 
Granted A Sabbatical Leave 

Joseph Langland, poet and professor of English at the University 
of Massachusetts, has been awarded a $7,500 grant from the National 
Council of the Arts for a year of creative work. 

Prof. Langland, author of the award-winning "Wheel of Sum- 
mer," is one of a select group of poet*, painters, sculptors, writers 
and composers at U.S. schools and colleges to be awarded the grants 
to enable them to take sabbatical leaves and spend their entire work 
time on creative artistic activity. 

He has been granted a sabbatical leave by the UMass Board of 
Trustees for the academic year beginning in September, 1966. He 
will spend the year, he said, mostly in writing, with limited travel. 
He plans to visit the Scandinavian countries, London and Rome. 

"I will work to complete a present book of poems with the work- 
ing title 'In the Interim,' and also work on a new book of poems," 
Prof. Langland said. "As a second-generation Norwegian-American, 
I expect to visit Scandinavia and poets there, and to work on a series 
of poems based on American speech rhythms of the Upper Midwest." 

His first book of poems, "The Green Town," was among the final 
nominees for the National Book Award in 1957; "The Wheel of Sum- 
mer," published by Dial Press in 1963, won the Melville Cane Award 
for an outstanding book of poetry published in 1963.

Cope Named O.I.S. Head ELECTIONS 

Robert G. Cope, former con- 
ference coordinator at the Uni- 
versity of Michigan, has been 
appointed director of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Of- 
fice of Institutional Studies. 

He has been named by the U- 
Mass Board of Trustees to as- 
sume, as of Aug. 15, 1966, the 
post left vacant when the former 
director, Dr. Leo F. Redfern, was 
named Dean of Administration. 

The Office of Institutional Stu- 
dies is a clearing house of infor- 
mation on UMass and institu- 
tions of higher education in gen- 
eral, provides a library of pub- 
lished information on higher ed- 
ucation, and serves as a research 
facility for analysis of institu- 
tional practices. Mr. Cope, as di- 
rector, will be aided by Raymond 
Casteipoggi, assistant director of 
O. I. S.

Hatching It Up At 
Smith, Amherst, Umass 

By Jane Roland 

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part 
of a series exploring and record- 
ing either little known U Mass 
places or giving a new look at 
familiar places. 

The Hatchet and Pipe Cafe- 
teria in the Student Union at U- 
Mass is hardly considered "just 
a cafeteria"; rather, it is a place 
to meet friends, to kill time be- 
tween classes, to finish up last 
minute assignments while listen- 
ing to the latest Beattles' record 
and to drink a chocolate Coke. 

It is, generally, a place for 
"doing nothing", a place where 
any student can go to waste 

In snack bars at other colleges 
in the area, this attitude is not 
so extreme — the cafeterias are 
for eating, although a student 
may dawdle over a cup of coffee. 

The difference can be seen in 
the physical set-up of the cafe- 
terias at the University an3 Am- 
herst and Smith Colleges. UMass' 
Hatch is large and barn-like — 
and plans are being made for 
further expansion soon. Most 
students sit with their friends 
at specific tables in pre-arranged 
areas. Contact between the two 
extreme opposite ends of the 
Hatch is minor — in the food 
lines, walking through to reach 
the other side or play the juke 
box, or through the ever-present 
Hatch ladies, constantly clearing 
tables of ripped cups and spilled 
milk. A student entering the 
room aims immediately for his 
own comfortable section — the 
"Greek" front area, the "Intel- 
lectual-beat" Back-of-the-Hatch, 
or the "Uncommitted Middle". 

No such unofficial yet elabor- 
ate seating plan exists at Smith 
and Amherst Colleges. It Is not 
needed because the schools are 
so much smaller and serve so 
many fewer students. The snack 
bars are much smaller, perhaps 
a quarter the size of the Hatch. 
Sitting at any table, anyone can 
see anyone seated at any other 
table, so there is no need for a 
pre - determined place to meet 
friends — they can easily be seen 


upon entering. Because these 
schools are not so large, it does 
not become so important to iden- 
tify with a group, as it seems to 
be in a university of 12,000. 

According to Dr. Robert Stan- 
field of the University sociology 
department, the Hatch is a won- 
derful place simply because peo- 
ple can go there to do nothing. 
Every once in a while on a 
crowded day, the intercom asks 
all those seated in the Hatch and 
not eating to please move on. 
The plea is, of course, ignored — 
the Hatch is for hanging around 

Then, how could someone be 
asked to leave for not doing 
something which is not the pur- 
pose of the place? Dr. Stanfield 
has said that, in a new sociologi- 
cal project to counteract Juvenile 
delinquency in Providence, R. I., 
one of the methods used was 
open empty stores, each 
furnished with tables and chairs, 
a phonograph, and a ping-pong 
table, where neighborhood kids 
could just drop in and do what 
they wished. Stanfield affection- 
ately termed these stores "Hat- 
ches" and remarked that a pro- 
ject in Providence was opening 
little Hatches all over the city, a 
way to combat juvenile delin- 
quency, "a place to go and do 

The atmosphere in the Union 
cafeteria is familiar and comfort- 
able for most UMass students, 
particularly those known as 
"Hatch Rats" for the long hours 

they spend sitting around the 
tables. It is a very noisy room. 
Dishes clatter over the constant 
drone of voices, broken by an oc- 
casional outburst from some- 
where. The juke box is usually 
playing, often in competition with 
a radio that no one upstairs bo- 
thered to turn off. The same 
song is often heard many times 
in an hour. 

Absence of a juke box is no- 
ticeable at Amherst College's 
snack bar, but the one at the 
Smith Davis Center is typically 
loud and occupies an obvious po- 
sition in the center of a long 
side wall. Music is part of the 
general noise. In the Hatch, it 
may be added to by a large 
dog's barking or the steady pound 
of someone typing an overdue 
term paper. 

The differences in snack bars 
at the three schools seems root- 
ed in the sizes of the schools — 
the small colleges with small 
snack bars, and the huge univer- 
sity with a barn-like cafeteria. 
There is no "seating plan" at the 
Smith or Amherst cafeterias be- 
cause, in a smaller school, stu- 
dents do not find it so necessary 
to identify with a particular 
group and sit with the group 
while eating or wasting time. 
But at a large school, students 
often believe identification is al- 
most necessary for survival. It 
seems, therefore, that one of the 
factors contributing to the 
Hatch's atmosphere is its strange 
seating plan.

Famed Picasso Exhibit 
Begins Here Thursday 

Two examples of Picasso's ex- 
cursions into the diverse minor 
arts — ceramics and graphics — 
will open at the Student Union 
from July 7 through July 21. 
Picasso Arts, Inc., New York 
City, has lent 58 ceramics and 30 
graphics for the exhibition entitl- 
ed, Picasso: Ceramics, Posters, 
Graphics, which is circulating 
throughout the United States un- 
der the auspices of 'T'hc Ameri- 
can Federation of Arts. 

Picasso began to work in the 
ceramic medium after moving to 
a studio in Golfe Juan on the 
French Riviera in 1946. His ven- 
ture into ceramics was acciden- 
tal. Visiting the Madoura studio 
in the neighboring village of 
Vallauris, he was fascinated with 
the results of a small bull that 
he had been persuaded to model. 
He was attracted to the medium 
because he could combine both 
the sculptural qualities of clay 
and the illusory aspects of over- 
painting; and also, since the ce- 
ramic ware was always fired, 
the colors would not fade, and 
the original intent of the artist 
would remain to the viewer. 

The ceramics included in this 
exhibition fall into two cata- 
gories: Empreinte Original de 
Picasso and Edition Picasso. In 
the first, Picasso works in the 
negative with a wet mold, carv- 
ing the design into the surface; 
the cast reproduces the object in 
reverse. In the second, the artist 
works in the positive, creating 
the design exactly as it will be 
viewed. From this a mold is 

made, the incisions following the 
original and indicating where the 
color is to be applied. All the 
editions are limited and, though 
Picasso does not cast or paint 
the editions, he examines and ap- 
proves each finished piece. Large 
plates, plaques, pitchers, vases 
and ashtrays comprise the ce- 
ramics on view. 

Picasso learned the technique 
of lithography in Fernand Mour- 
lofs studio in Paris. After mov- 
ing to the south of France, he 
continued to make lithographs 
with zinc plates and stones sent 
to him by Mourlot. 

All the linoleum cuts are or- 
iginal works of art by Picasso. 
Contrary to earlier methods, 
Picasso uses one block for the 
entire picture, carving the first 

part, printing the first color, 
scrapping or washing away the 
color after printing, carving a- 
gain and printing the second 
color, etc., until completed. 

Two estampes are also on view. 
An estampe is an aquatint after 
an oil or gouache, and is done by 
Picasso in cooperation with a 
master engraver, Crommelynck. 
Only one estampe is made year- 
ly and each color is done on a 
separate plate. 

Posters dealing with various 
subjects such as an announce- 
ment of a special exhibition in 
Vallauris are also included in 
the exhibition. 

The July 7 opening will be 
highlighted by a reception in the 
Student Union with refreshments 
being served. Admission is free. 

Councilors showed up for the 
first meeting last Thursday. Se- 
ven constituencies were without 
elected representatives. 

How to fill the vacant seats 
and the method of electing Coun- 
cil officers were the principal 
items of business accomplished 
in the two and one-half hour 

Lew Gurwitz '68, an RSO ad- 
visor and organizer of the group, 
acted as chairman. He led stu- 
dent representatives in a pledge, 
"oath of office," to uphold the 
rules and regulations which the 
Council will pass later on this 
summer. Gurwitz, a member of 
the Student Senate, told the 
Collegian that such laws of the 
Council could not be binding on 
the Senate. 

THE PROBLEM of Michael 
Ward's candidacy was tackled 
first. Ward had typed only two 
digits of his room number on 
his nomination paper and was, 
consequently, placed on the Gor- 
man basement ballot. 

Gurwitz offered the view that 
it was Ward's own fault that, 
unopposed on his floor, he had 
not been elected. The candidate 
had been unable to vote himself 
(in company with most summer 
students) and, not knowing of 
the error, could not correct it. 
"The only thing you have that 
grants you any authority at all 
is that you're elected," Gurwitz 
told the Councilors in suggest- 
ing that Ward, if he were to be 
admitted without another elec- 
tion, be only accepted unani- 

Joe Ross '67 spoke against the 
chair's recommendation on the 
grounds that it would encour- 
age unanimous voting on all 

as unfamiliar to many present 
as they were time - consuming, 
Ross' motion defeating the unani- 
mous requirement for admitting 
Ward was passed. 

After the Council's initial de- 
bate, a motion not to accept 
Ward, requiring him to run a- 
gain if he wants his seat (and he 
had indicated he would run), 
was passed. 

Ross, a Senator from Brett, 
suggested the plan which was 
adopted without opposition for 
filling the seven vacancies. 
Each floor or constituency would 
remain the same; however, can- 
didates from any floor in a dor- 
mitory might run for a vacancy 
on another. Selection of Tuesday, 
July 5, (allowing the seven as 
yet un-elected members to par- 
ticipate in the election of offi- 
cers) was passed by a vote of 
12 to 7. 

JACKIE SOMMA of Field was 
asked to determine if the sev- 
enth floor of that dorm was a 
proper constituency. It was re- 
ported that a number of gradu- 
ate students and other students 
staying for only a month lived 

Miss Somma counted only six 
students who would remain all 
summer. She said Sunday that 
it was unlikely for the seventh 
floor to comprise one unit itself. 
The next order of business was 
the manner and time of electing 
officers for the Council. Joe 
Doucette '70 suggested dropping 
the candidate polling the lowest 
number of votes on each ballot 
after the first if a majority of 
votes were not received by any 
candidate. To this motion, Ross 
attempted an amendment drop-

ROTC Gives Awards 


Elections will be held Tuesday, July 5, for the six or seven un- 
represented constituencies In the Summer Student Executive Council. 

Any dormitory resident may run for a vacant seat on another 
floor. The candidates must be a resident of the dorm. 

According to the Council plan, no nomination papers are re- 
quired but candidates are urged to "pre-reglster" their candidacy 
with the RSO Office in the Student Union before 5 p.m. Tuesday. 
A list of announced candidates will be available for students who 
are voting. 

Because no names will appear on the ballot, all votes must be 
written (••printed*') in. A vote which cannot be Identified will be 
disqualified. Five votes were set by the Council as the minimum 

The candidates elected Tuesday will take their places In the 
Wednesday and participate fully In the election of officers. 

Colonel Joseph A. Rohnak, Professor of Military Science, 
announced recently the award of Army ROTC Scholarships to 
Frederick H. Anderson, Richard E. D'Andrea and Paul J. St 

These students have successfully met the demands of the 
qualifying program and will receive full tuition, books and fees 
plus $50.00 per month during their Junior and Senior years. 

Upon completion of the program which includes a six weeks 
advanced training period at summer camp between their junior 
and senior years, successful cadets will be awarded commissions 
in the United States Army.

Editor Reviews 
Annette's Case 

Letters to the Editor 

Summer Reporter 

A case similar to that of Uni- 
versity of Oregon editor Annette 
Buchanan may be developing in 
Rhode Island, indicated the 
Providence Evening Bulletins 
managing editor James Geehan 
in a session with UMass journal- 
ism students. 

On Monday, May 23, a Bulletin 
story on the area use of drugs, 
particularly marijuana use by 
college students, written by Lor- 
ana O. Sullivan appeared. The 
article confided that a "reporter 
was able to buy a $5 bag of loose 
marijuana from a Brown Univer- 
sity student during her second 
meeting with him." 

In preparing the article, first 
of a series, the reporter inter- 
viewed two Rhode Island School 
of Design and four Brown stu- 
dents who admitted the use of 
drugs and a heroin addict from 
the College Hill area and two 
young addicts who are police in- 
formers. Other students at the 
two institutions, about 20, who 
were using or had used marajua- 
na also contributed information. 

The newspaper investigation 
was prompted by charges 
brought in February against 
four students by Providence po- 
lice and the dismissals of five 
Brown and three Pembroke Col- 
lege students in 1965, both inci- 
dents involving marijuana. 

The Bulletin's Geehan, after 
discussing Miss Buchanan's con- 
tempt of court conviction for re- 
fusing to divulge the names of 
sources in her Daily Emerald 
marijuana story, spoke of his pa- 
per's policy. 

He said that authorities in 
Rhode Island had requested that 
Miss Sullivan volunteer to testi- 
fy on her sources. This favor was 
refused, he said, because it is 
their practice not to appear be- 
fore government bodies without 
being subpoenaed. 

Asked if he would support 
Miss Sullivan, if she were sub- 
poenaed and if she refused to 
testify, Gehan asserted that he 
would and that he expected the 
reporter would protect her sourc- 

By revealing her informants, 
"She would be completely dis- 
credited as a reporter ... by do- 
ing this, she would hurt every 
membe r of the staff," explained 
the managing editor. Reporters 
would, thereafter, hesitate to 
pass along information received 
confidentially, he continued. 

Geehan scored law enforce- 
ment officials, saying "I'm sure 
if they really wanted to do the 
job they could do it tenfold 

In the early stages of the Ore- 
gon case, it was asserted before 
the county grand jury that a 
newspaper has the function of 
cooperating with police to pro- 
duce convictions. 

As for the technique of gath- 
ering this material which includ- 
ed breaking the law to buy mari- 
juana, Geehan thought, "we have 
no choice in the matter." 

Speaking on "Editorial Enter- 
prise," Thursday, June 30, the 
R. I. newsman, Brown '47, dealt 
with means of bettering news 
compiling and adapting news for 
the local reader. 

New Grading System ? 

To the Editor: 

I, for one, have an undeniable hatred for the 
results of the five-point grading system used at 
this and many other schools. The blessing of the 
five-point system back in 1930, when student- 
faculty relationships were minimal, is now out- 
moded. Colleges had turned to this five-point 
system as an approach to more efficient and ob- 
jective student evaluations when colleges started 
their parabolic growth. 

With grades being a more important factor 
today, many schools still employ this archaical 
five-point system which increases the student's 
motivation toward grades rather than learning. 

Now, I grant you the fact that both ends of 
the learning-and-grades continuum presents an un- 
realistic situation. But ask yourself how yotr 
feel when you get that "C" with a 79 average lation which has become increasingly homogenous 
and contrasting that feeling wi*h that "D" and in talents as well as abilities, 
a 60 average. If the grading system were more Tom Mosco '66

grading system. The Collegian wants to hear from you. Address your comments to the Editor 
c/o the Collegian. All letters must be signed, names will be withheld on request. 

accurate in representing your numerical grade, 
you wouldn't have had the vicarious trauma. 

Well . . . how about a 15-point system where an 
A plus equals 15 and an F minus equals 1 ? The 
emphasis would shift from the attainment of a 
misrepresentation in your grade along the con- 
tinuum towards learning and more personal satis- 
faction. Haven't you ever felt that you wanted 
to spend more time in a course of more interest 
to you than in one where you had to allott you:- 
time so you could get that "B" with an 80 
average? I'm sure you realize that the student 
with four C minuses and a B will receive a higher 
GPA than one with five C pluses in the five- 
point system . . . not so in the fifteen-point system. 

It seems idiotic that we should have selective 

admission to college and not have a better grad-

Amherst Trustees Give 
OK to Fraternity Future 

The Trustees of Amherst Col- 
lege — responding to a faculty re- 
solution urging the replacement 
of fraternities with a system of 
societies — have concluded that 
"the present need or desirability 
of abolishing Amherst fraterni- 
ties has not been established." 

In a resolution adopted at a 
recent meeting, the Trustees 
praised the faculty's concern and 
"thoughtful observations concer- 
ning student life at Amherst" 
and resolved that "fraternities 
should neither be abolished (as 
some have advised) nor applaud- 
ed (as others have urged). 

Rather, the Trustees believe 
that Amherst can and should 
maintain a pluralistic society, 
that fraternities are worthy of 
participation in it, and that the 
contours of student social or- 
ganizations should continue to 
undergo evolutionary changes un- 
aided and unimpeded by t h e 

THE TRUSTEES pointed out 
that fraternities at Amherst "lit- 
tle resemble those of the pre- 
World War II period. Nor, for 
that matter, did the fraternities 
in that time greatly resemble 
those of a still earlier day. In 
ways not predictable, the nor- 
malties of tomorrow's campus 
life will be different from to- 
day's. The direction and speed of 
change will perforce be deter- 
mined by those most immediate- 
ly informed, subject to suitable 
review by the President as rep- 
resentative of the Board of Trus- 
tees in protecting the vital in- 
terests of the College." 

The Trustees pointed out that 
the College has developed at- 
tractive social and residential 
arrangements outside the frater- 
nities, and competing with fhem, 
and that the fraternities "must 
therefore constantly justify their 
existence to the students of fu- 
ture years." 

The Board's vote followed a 
full year's study by a trustee 
committee established in res- 
ponse to a faculty resolution 
that, in effect, urged the re- 
placement of fraternities with a 
system of non-selective societies. 
The full faculty, acting on the 
recommendations of a faculty 
committee report on student life, 
concluded that fraternities no 
longer made positive contribu- 
tions to the intellectual life of 
the college, and that they fos- 
tered a division between thought 
and pleasure which it found in- 
imical to the purpose of the 

The Trustees resolved that 
"the faculty's initiative has led 
to invigorating discussion and 
continuing self-evaluation within 
the college" and pointed out that 
the faculty's concern has already 
led to new changes and experi- 
ments, among them the forma- 
tion of a standing faculty-stu- 
dent committee concerned with 
undergraduate life, discipline, 
and other matters. 

"not all fraternities are at their 
best," the Trustees also recog- 
nized that fraternities still offer 
special opportunities for valuable 
experiences and relationships and 

that "the derilictions of some do 
not justify a sweeping condem- 
nation of all fraternities. We be- 
lieve that a fraternity's mem- 
bers can, if they will, maintain a 
commendable social grouping." 
The Trustees also voted to "en- 
courage the administration to as- 
sist, to the extent that may seem 
prudent, the enrichment of ex- 
periences at Amherst — in dor- 
mitories, in fraternities, and in 
any new structures of student 
relationships created in response 
to the students' own sensed 

The thirteen Amherst frater- 
nities, considerably changed since 
World War II, were among the 
first to eliminate all discrimina- 
tory practices in matters of race 
and religion; the majority have 
also abolished most of their ri- 
tuals, hazing, and other prac- 
tices traditionally associated with 
college fraternities; and since 
1952, all students who wishefl to 
become fraternity members have 
been able to do so. Entering 
freshmen are not permitted to 
join fraternities; all students, 
whether fraternity members or 
not, eat in the college dining 
commons. About 80 percent of 
Amherst's upperclassmen belong 
to fraternities.

Summer Theatre 
Presents Irma 

Will she Burn? Nope 
this summer! 

Not if she's read the Collegian article on How to Tan . . . wisely 

To Tan or Not to Tan ? 

"Summer is icumen in", says 
the old song, and everybody is 
"a-goin' out"— out of the office, 
playroom, and pantry, and into 
the sunshine at beaches, patios 
and poolsides. 

The great annual trek of the 
tan-ables has begun. Yet it is 
surprising how many "sun wor- 
shipers" retunffrom their vaca- 
tions disappointed with their 
feeble tans, or what's worse, 
dry-and-peeling skin. 

But you can easily be the "liv- 
ing doll" with the fabulous tan 
this summer (or whenever you 
enjoy getting away from it all 
to that relaxable place in the 
sun). In fact, it's as easy as 1, 
2, 3, 4, 5 ! Fun, too ! 

1. Know what causes sunburn. 

Light rays, not heat rays, are 
the burning rays. That's why you 

can burn on an overcast day — 
or under a beach umbrella or a 
shade tree. 

2. Know the right time for 
tanning. The sun's burning rays 
are most intense from 11 a.m. 
to 2 p.m. so you're much safer 
sunbathing before or after these 
hours. Safer, too, to start with 
only a few minutes of sun each 
day, then when your skin be- 
comes sun-conditioned, gradually 
increase your exposure time. 

3. Know your skin type and 
how to dress for tanning. If 
you're a redhead or blond you 
should be very careful — and that 
no matter what your skin type 
is you should select a suntan pro- 
duct to match it. As to the way 
to dress for a tan, it's according 
to how much of your body you 
want to tan. 

4. Know that some suntan pro- 

Critics and Supporters 
Speak Up on Draft 

ducts are more effective. Some 
products block out so much sun 
you almost never tan; others 
block out so little sun you risk a 
painful burn. For most people, 
the most effective products are 
those with a balanced sunscreen 
providing sufficient protection so 
you can remain in the sun for a 
reasonable length of time with- 
out getting burned and still get 
a very attractive tan. 

5. Know how to apply your 
favorite suntan product Suntan 
products are available in cream, 
oil, lotion or spray, so selecl the 
type best for your skin. Once 
you've made your selection, cover 
evenly all exposed areas of your 
skin before you expose yourself 
to the sun. 

Follow these pointers for pale- 
faces this summer and you can 
have a healthy, coppery tan that 
will make you a "living doll !" 
Get out and get under the sun 
— but tan, don't burn ! 

The U of Mass Summer Rep- 
ertory Theatre will open its 
1966 season with the musical 
comedy "Irma La Douce," to be 
presented Friday and Saturday, 
July 8 and 9, at 8:30 p.m. in 
Bartlett Theatre. 

The sophisticated adult comedy 
will be the opening drama per- 
formance of the 1966 UMass 
Summer Arts Program. Its 
companion productions in the 
repertory series will be "Look 
Homeward, Angel,"Ketti Frings 
drama based on the novel of 
that name by Thomas Wolfe, 
and "The Importance of Being 
Earnest," Oscar Wilde's classic 
comedy of manners. Opening 
production of "Look Home- 
ward , Angel" will be July 14; 
the Wilde comedy wWl open 
July 20. 

Repertory theatre made its 
debut at last year's UMass 
Summer Arts Festival with a 
three production series that 
played to sell-out crowds all 
season. This year's company 
has drawn performers from 
many parts of the U.S. and is 
headed by Harry Mahnken, Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Thea- 
tre director and assistant pro- 

fessor of speech. 

"Irma La Douce" has Parisian 
atmosphere, colorful French un- 
derworld characters and lilting 
music by the author of "The 
Poor People of Paris," Margue- 
rite Monnot. Half real and half 
fantasy, it tells what happens 
when Irma, a Pigalle girl, and 
Nestor, a poor law student, fall 
in love. 

The English book and lyrics, 
adapted from the French ver- 
sion by Alexandre Breffort, are 
by Julian More, David Heneker 
and Monty Norman. The UMass 
production is directed by Prof. 
Mahnken with musical direction

After nearly two weeks as 
the subject of hearings before 
the House Armed Services 
Committee, the military draft 
has found both some harsh crit- 
ics and some strong supporters. 

Rep. L. Mendel Rivers (D.- 
S.C.) opened the hearings by 
raising che question of lowering 
the current age level of 26 "sub- 
stantially" during peace time. 
The next day, Lt. Gen. Lewis 
B. Hershey, director of Selec- 
tive Service, said he wanted the 
limit raised so that the draft 
could include men up to age 35 
who had been deferred for some 
reason when they were in the 
19 - to - 26 age group. 

And that's the way it went 
for the first week of testimony. 
General Hershey said a lottery 
wouldn't work after members 
of the committee and some 
members of the House and Sen- 
ate urged its adoption. Hershey 
said the draft was fair after 
committe members cited long 
lists of letters from their dis- 
tricts, and Hershey defended 
across-the-board student defer- 
ments after charges that only 
the poor were being drafted. 

Then members of Congress 
took the witness stand to reit- 
erate statements that they have 
been making publicly for some 
time: the draft is not fair, a 
lottery is better, and a universal 
training system Is better still. 

Little that was new came 
from the hearings, and they 
served as the opportunity for a 
lot of people to once again 
praise their pet plans. 

For example, General Hershey 
continually urged a more univer- 
sal military system that would 
take many of the poorer and 

uneducated young men who are 
now rejected. Hershey stressed 
that his idea was not to increase 
the size of the armed forces but 
to take the "disadvantaged" in 
order to "teach them and better 
their morals." The general pro- 
posed that "the Army is the 
best way for the country to 
raise the educational and moral 
levels of these boys." 

The idea, while not new, drew 
little or no response from com- 
mittee members who were busy 
pushing their own pet projects. 

Hershey was also ready with 
a lot of facts and statistics to 
show that the present system 
works pretty well. 

He said that 56 per cent of 
the men who are deferred for 
college study eventually enter 
the service. This compares to 
only 46 per cent of those who 
are not deferred, the general 
said, indicating that the Army 
was more interested in people 
with high levels of education 
than those with little or no 
schooling beyond grade school. 

The big reason the draft is un- 
der fire now, the general said, 
is that it is taking more people 
than it normally does. The re- 
quirements of the war in Viet- 
nam, he said, mean that many 
more men have to be called 
than the draft generally han- 
dles "When you start calling 
people," he said, "they start 


A unique doctoral-level pro- 
gram to provide training in re- 
search has been instituted by 
the University of Massachusetts 
under a $270,000 grant from 
the U.S. Office of Education. 

The program will offer train- 
ing in three areas — curriculum 
and instruction research evalu- 
ation and research dissemina- 
tion. It is directed by Dr. Albert 
Anthony, Dr. Ambrose Clegg, 
Dr. Robert Schweiker and Dr. 
William Wolf of the School of 
Education and Dr. Harry Schu- 
mer of the psychology depart- 

The aim of the program is to 
train social science or education 
graduate students for applied 
research positions within the 
education community. 

The training is intended to 
provide a "second major" — a 
concentration of research skills 
in addition to the student's 
prime academic field. 

Students accepted for the pro- 
gram will earn 21 hours of 
graduate credit toward the doc- 
torate degree. Each will receive 
a $2400 stipend per year, plus 
dependency allowance, tuition 
and other benefits each year for 
one or two years. 

According to Dr. Wolf: "It is 
hoped that as a result of this 
exposure, the field of pedagogy 
will benefit from an infusion of 
scholars with new perspectives, 
unique academic background. 

and relevant skills. Talent of 
this sort already is in demand 
for the evolving network of re- 
gional research laboratories, re-

ing, and educationally-oriented

Dr. Lundberg noted that a 
number of two-year Stockbridge 
School graduates each year 
transfer to the four-year UMass 
program and that others have in- 
dicated they would if they had 
some financial assistance. 'This 
scholarship program will make it 
possible for graduates of the 
Stockbridge School who demon- 
strate ambition, capacity for 
work and an interest in the food 
and lodging business to have an 
additional two and a half years 
in the UMass program," Dr. 
Lundberg said. 

He noted also that the four- 
year trial will give the Statler 
Foundation an opportunity to e- 
valuate the part this kind of 
scholarship assistance can play 
in training young people for the 
hotel and restaurant field.

Wayward Press 

Dilkes Comments on the Press 

Government Research 
Done on Campus 

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part of a series of 
inteiinews unth members of the UMass faculty 
and staff, recording their assessments of The 
Collegian. They will continue each Tuesday. 


Unlike the Massachusetts Collegian and other 
American college newspapers, the student paper 
at the University of Moscow is printed irregularly 
and not very frequently. Thomas Dilkes of the 
History Department, who just returned to UMass 
after a semester of research in the Soviet Union, 
said that in all the time he was there, he saw 
only a few copies of the paper. 

"The Soviet student press is hardly like the 
Collegian," he said. "It's put out by the students 
and faculty of the Journalism Department, very 
much like the laboratory for that school. It con- 
tains very little news of the campus. 

"In this way," he explained, "the college press 

is like the regular press. Newspapers in the Soviet 
Union don't print the news their first five or six 
pages are made up weeks in advance. Most of the 
paper is made of articles and editorial comment 
on various problems (agriculture, for instance), 
or some human interest stories." 

Dilkes picked up his pipe and, lighting it, 
leaned back in his chair, a foot resting on the 
desk. "The Soviet press considers itself the great- 
est in the world. It is a guided press, but for 
ethical purposes. Editorial policy is official policy; 
if a Russian reads a violent editorial in a small- 
town paper somewhere from the United States, he 
is thus often confused into taking the editor's 
policy as official policy." 

On the shelves on one wall of his office are 
a pre-Revolution edition of a Russian encyclopedia, 
equivalent to the 11th edition of the Encyclopedia 
Brittanica because of the great men writing on 
their individual specialties. Dilkes explained this 
with great pride in his rare set of books. When 
a graduate student came into the office, curious 
about the author of one of the articles in the set, 

Dilkes went through several volumes trying to 
find the necessary information. 

Said Dilkes; 'The student newspaper at Mos- 
cow University doesn't seem to be too well read. 
Most students, however, read the regular news- 
papers, Pravda, and a young adult paper put out 
by the Communist youth organization. The major 
newspapers are national, but in different versions 
— a Ukraine Pravda and a Byelo-Russjan Pravda. 
for instance. The papers are delivered to the dif- 
ferent floors in the dormitory." 

He turned in his chair and pointed to a hand- 
lettered Russian poster behind the desk. He said 
that a similar copy hung on every floor of the 
dormitory, a huge building containing lecture halls 
and all kinds of stores, as well as four 22-story 
towers with about 50 rooms on each floor. The 
building, the main dormitory, houses about 22,000. 
Dilkes turned around again, lighting his pipe and 
started to translate the poster. "It lists the duties 
of the per s on s itting at the de sk — how h e mus t 

stay at the telephones, pick up the newspapers, 
keep the floor clean, and make sure no student 
makes an international phone call," he continued. 

There is a literary magazine at the university; 
not student-run but put out by the literature fac- 
ulty. It comes out monthly and, said Dilkes, has 
often been the butt of government attacks be- 
cause of literary criticism. 

The student newspaper, he said, expresses 
protest only on inoffensive subjects as disorganiza- 
tion and juvenile delinquency — problems of the 
student to society. University students will often 
write for national papers, such as Pravda, as well 
as the small school paper. 

Dilkes ran his fingers through his hair, then 
picked up his pipe again. The student paper at 
Moscow University is not very big; people just 
don't read it the way we read the Collegian," he 
commented. But their paper does seem to reflect 
the larger press well, just as the UMass school 
paper reflects the larger newspapers in the coun- 
try, Dilkes agreed.

A relic from the days of old 
"Mass. Aggie" houses' a relative- 
ly new but extremely important 
bureau for both the campus and 
outlying communities. The Bu- 
reau of Government Research, 
under direction of William 
Schaeley, is an integral part of 
the University community yet 
few students ever use its facil- 
ities. They may, however, feel 
its influence in their home 
towns and the smaller cities. 

Located" at the intersection 
northeast of the Student Union 
the sandstone building stands 
out because of its diversity from 
the architectural atmosphere of 
modern nearby buildings. It is a 
converted house which once held 
the graduate offices, RSO and 
other student facilities. 

In 1956, the Massachusetts 
state government decided to es- 
tablish the bureau as a body for 
service, research and consulta- 
tion to increase the availability 
of information on government 
functions and positions on a lo- 
cal level. A staff of six profes- 
sionals operate and maintain re- 
search projects and workshops 
for public officials, conduct con- 
ferences for the education of 
public officials and publish pam- 
phlets and handbooks for use in 
local governments in the area. 

Edwin Gere, Jr., a member of 
the staff and authority on the 
governments of townships, out- 
lined the three areas in which 
the bureau concentrates. Service 
to the communities is given by 
providing specific legal informa- 
tion as to the particular duties, 
responsibilities and rights of lo- 
cal officials. Bureau staffers will 
answer any questions a local 
elected leader might have con- 
cerning his job. The publication 
of handbooks enables these peo- 
ple to be more accurate in their 
jobs and to function on a broader 
basis. Statistical research con- 
ducted by Staff members records 
the economic, social and politi- 
cal information necessary for ef- 
ficient functioning of local gov- 

The bureau acts also as a con- 
sulting agency upon request of 
a municipality and will send rep- 
resentatives into these areas to 
provide guidance and informa- 
tion to enact special programs. 
Gere pointed out that this is a 
valuable resource for communi- 
ties that need to adjust to rapid 
growth or political change. 

The bureau is also available to 
act as a liaison between the state 

government and the community 
when a new state law or program 
has been enacted. 

James Reed, another staff 
member, spoke of his job as di- 
rector of conferences and work- 
shops held from time to :ime 
for the exchange and iHncimlm 
t»on of information. One such 
event which he organized was 
the winter Governor's Confer- 
ence on Education at UMass. 
During the course of this con- 
ference, educators and political 
leaders from all over the state 
worked together to familiarize 
themselves with new educational 
boards provided in the Harring- 
ton-Willis Act. Parent-teacher 
organizations, Principals associ- 
ations and political groups were 
coordinated into a body of more 

"ktiowiedgeabh? civic ieaders, 

Reed explained. 

This type of conference can be 
conducted with newly elected 
civic officials interested in a 
study of their particular govern- 
ment duties, he added. 

The bureau operates a small 
library which contains records 
from national, state and local 
governments. While this is not a 
lending library, information is 
available to anyone who might 
need it. 

Each staff member teaches in 
the government department part 
time and therefore is associated 
with university students. 

Students seeking information 
about their local governments or 
doing research on civic functions 
can check with this relatively 
unknown but extremely func- 
tional bureau. An old building 
certainly does not hamper new 
ideas or progress.

"I accept the nomination for 
President of the Summer Execu- 
tive Council." "I humbly accept 
this nomination." "I'm gratified 
first of all for the nomination." 
In these words, the presidential 
candidates of the summer gov- 
ernment addressed their peers. 

The four officers elected are: 
President Paul Schlosberg '70, 
Vice President John Lannon '67, 
Treasurer Ann McGuhigle '69, 
and Secretary Caryn Goldberg 
'70. All were elected at the Wed- 
nesday, July 6 meeting on one 
ballot with the exception of Miss 
Goldberg, who was chosen unani- 

A ballot for the contests might 
have been set up in the follow- 
ing way.

President Schlosberg in his 
candidate's speech outlined a 
program of grievances to be dealt 
with and activities to initiate. 
Curfew, meal, library, and free 
swim hours were issues he enu- 
merated on the evening exactly 
of the third week of the first 
session. Stressing active partici- 
pation, the Council head had sug- 
gested an intermural program, 
work with Belchertown Hospital 
children, volunteer ushers and 
usherettes for arts festival e- 
vents, and a barbecue. 

Schlosberg observed midway 
that the' Council has $500 and 
each dormitory $200 to spend for 
the summer. 

Lannon, on the floor in his own 
behalf, made the pledge, "I do 
like hard work." His nominator, 
who had lost an election despite 
"experience," concluded for the 
candidate, "Once more, I make an 
appeal for persons of experience." 

During the course of the open 
debate on the vice presidential 

candidates, a student non-mem- 
ber of the Council was denied 
permission to speak for a can- 
didate. Brian Benlifer, defeated 
17-16 by Ross in his Brett elec- 
tion, had wanted to endorse the 
candidate for vice president. 

After the elections, two hours 
and a half after 7:08, the Coun- 
cil recessed for ten minutes, then 
Lew Gurwite, in his last duties 
as chairman, swore in the officers. 
Business, as well; was con- 
ducted at the meeting with the 
new president assuming the chair. 
Gurwitz, sitting on the platform 
as "parliamentarian," helped 
Schlosberg go through the mo- 
tions of manipulating motions. 

Given permission to speak, 
Gurwitz recommended that the 
Council write Dean of Men Hop- 
kins a letter approving the sum- 
mer Men's Judiciary and af- 
firming appointment of the 
three students who compose it. 
The Council was invited to say 
it too "appoints" Lew Gurwitz, 
Skin Davis (also a member of 
the CouncU), and Bob Lebel; 
the Senate made the appoint- 

Assertions of establishing po-

The Executive Council had 
decided not to have runoffs so 
as to enable the newly elected 
councillors to attend Wednes-

Council and participate in the

University Budget Slash Hits 
Amherst, Boston and Worcester 


"Without the extra appropriations, we cannot 
conduct the quality program that we want to" 
concluded Provost Tlppo commenting on the re- 
cent cuts rendered to the '66-'67 budget signed by 
Governor Volpe for the University. 

The budget for the University for the '66-'67 
fiscal year was signed by Volpe on June 30. The 
final figures of the tri-partite budget (Amherst, 
Boston and Medical School) are less than re- 
quested by the University. 

Tho original request amounted to $27,424,077. 
The Governor's recommendation however was for 
$25,765,410. A total of $2,152,977 was the final 
budget cut as the legislature appropriated 

The total budget cut was divided into various 
area^. On the Amherst campus, cutbacks were 
made in the requests for permanent salaries, ser- 
vices of non-employees as well as clothing, heat, 
light, travel and advertising expenditures. The 
library and the special educational supplies re- 

quests were also cutback. 

Perhaps the only areas left unscathed were 
food, housekeeping supplies and the Laboratory, 
farm, medical and President's home monies. 

The Boston campus request also suffered from 
cutbacks. The total budget cut for the campus 
was around $5,000. One of the major cuts came 
again in the area of permanent salaries. Cuts 
were also made in many of the same areas as was 
the Amherst campus budget. The only exception 
in the Boston budget was the request for heat 
and light which amounted to $55,000. 

Medical school requests were also sharply 're- 
duced. Again permanent salaries suffered a serious 
subtraction as did the areas common to both 
the Amherst and Boston Campuses. 

As a result of these cutbacks the University is 
filing a supplementary bill for an additional re- 
quest of over two million dollars. 

The consensus of opinion is that without these 
additional funds the University and its branches 
will be seriously hampered. '

King of the Pink Slips Reigns 
In Depths of Univ. Bookstore 

UM Parachute Club Dives, 
Free-Fails, Shows Films 

by Fred Pilon 

It's a twisting turning route 
to the depths of the Student 
Union and then, when you're 
near your goal, boxes filled 
with textbooks block your path 
all sizes and shapes. 

The man responsible for all 
these cartons of books is Aaron 
Clark, balding slightly, a spry 
40 years old. Tucked away be- 
hind all the confusion of car- 
tons is his "office." 

His office is a corner in the 
back room of the Bookstore. 
The desk is cluttered with pink 
slips that list the books in a 
shipment and their list prices. 
Aaron Clark is responsible for 
ordering an d receiving all text- 
books and magazines. 

Stopping for a moment in 
his writing, he smiled and 
stared at a pink slip lying on 
his desk. "Whenever you stop 
working for a second and just 
stare at these pink slips, its 
like stepping into some un- 
known world," said Clark. 
"They almost have the power 
to hypnotize someone, espec- 
ially if the student help writes 
on them with exotically color- 
ed inks, as they like to do." 

Directly overhead is a new 
air conditioning unit for the 
bookstore, humming steadily; 
the only steady sound in an 
area of hectic activity. The 
daylight flows in and on his 
desk from two windows on the 
right side of the desk. Aaron 
sees the full spectrum of col- 
ors that falls upon all the 
books stacked in the area. 

His work day begins often 

at 7 o'clock, on other days be- 

'fore seven. Usually the first to 

arrive at the Bookstore, he is 

also the latest in leaving. 

On the plasterboard wall fac- 
ing him is an old sign that 
reads "College Store", a re- 
membrance of years past. Two 
paintings hang on the same 
wall, one a scene of a New 
England red barn, tucked into 
a corner formed by the rolling 
green hills and half hidden by 
stately oak trees. The other is 
a typical New England fishing 
village with its small curving 
thin streets and even thinner 
sidewalks lined with white- 
washed wood frame two-story 

Stuck into the bottom part 
of the frame is a small slip of 
paper. The first words that 
catch one's attention are 
"What a beautiful day", below 
however, in keeping with real- 
ity and the vicissitudes that 
plague his work, is written, 
"Just watch some bastard 
louse it up." 

In three of the corners of 
the painting are photographs, 
old mass production high scho- 
ol photos, of his two sons and 
daughter. Directly beneath the 
College Store sign and the sea-

Well, not quite, but In the 
free-fall, with a ratio of one 
foot forward for every two 
feet down, you're coming close. 
This Is just one aspect of sport 

In the late '50's, the UMass 
Sport Parachuting Club was 
formed as an attempt to bring 
sport parachuting to the col- 
legiate scene. The Club has 
competed in many Collegiate 
Meets; in the 1964 Meet held 
at Orange, the Club brought 
home seven of the eight avail- 
able awards. In the 1965 Col- 
legiate meet, the UMass teams 
took several awards but were 
outmatched, equipment-wisej -by 
the cadets from West Point. 

In proximity to Orange Air- 
port, one of the safest and best 
equipped jump centers in the 
country, the UMass Club has 
always had available the best 
training area in the Northeast. 

On Monday, July 11, at 8:00 
P. M., in Hasbrouk - 20, the U - 

Mass Sport Parachuting Club 
will sponsor a series of films 
dealing with parachuting and 
skydiving. The films, which 
are provided by Parachutes, 
Inc., will show aircraft exit 
scenes, free-fall techniques and 
various forms of parachuting 

On hand, besides an officer 
of the Club, will be a represen- 
tative of Parachutes, Inc., who 
will answer questions dealing 
with any aspects of the sport. 
Included in the series is a film 
that was nominated for an Aca- 
demy Award, titled, A Sport is 

And where is the "sport" in 
parachuting? "Drop in" and 
find out. 





Aaron Clark in the University Bookstore. 'Fat Girls and Beautiful 

coast town painting is a crude- 
ly made brie a brae complete 
with two shelves. The bottom 
contains a small replica of a 
white UMass drinking cup, the 
other item is a small brown 
jug, complete with cork. 

Sitting on the top shelf, as 
though he were on top of the 
world, is the world famous 
Snoopy, with a dog-eat-dog 
grin that would fit halfway 
round the world. Immediately 
to his left is the infamous lov- 
able Lucy, tormentor of Char- 
ley Brown, glaring bleakly 
with a frown that could make 
a grown man whimper. 

Once Aaron himself develop- 
ed a whimper. He accidentally 
kicked an empty carton out of 
his way, only to discover that 
it was full of books. Pulled 
muscles and torn ligaments re- 
sulted. Being stout of heart 
and stubborn of mind, Clark 
refused to see a doctor until 
the pain became too unbear- 
able and his limp appeared gro- 
tesque. After a few weeks, he 
was back at his office. 

His desk is cluttered with all 
sorts of naraphenalia — strings, 
pencils, ashtrays, calendar, pig- 
gybank, books, cigar butts, a 
mannequin's shapely right leg 
sheathed in a nylon and many 
other useless trivia. 

The desk is large, solid, 
wooden, with drawers on both 
sides of the space for legs. At 
the writing area is a large, red 
poster, frayed and torn at the 
edges, feebly held down by 

"No two women are alike. . . 
goes the wording on an adver- 
tising card held upright by a 
metal clip. Two women are 
presented on each half of the 

card. One is a gargantuous 
300 lb. monster, regally dresesd 
in a four-year old child's type 
dress, with a top that barely 
covers her ballooning breasts 
and a bottom that neatly div- 
ides her stump-size thighs. 

The other woman is all that; 
a pert, early twenties-type si- 
ren, she is standing on the 
beach with her side to the cam- 
era, coyly beckoning all males 
to join her in a swim. 

"There's something worth 
your time in every woman, but 
how long you have to look for 
it is something else," Clark 
commented. Then glancing 
wistfully at the young girl 
first and then at the fat girl, 
Aaron added, "For all I know 
she may have a wonderful per-

Secret Science Of Soul Travel 
Lauded By Eckankar Expert 

UM Receives Grant 
Looks At Information 

In these days of striving to 
open the consciousness so one 
can reach new levels of con- 
sciouness by artificial agents, 
anyone can gain God-Realiza- 
tion by natural means accord- 
ing to Paul Twitchell, leading 
advocate of Eckankar, secret 
science of Soul Travel, and 
who is said to have the ability 
to be in many places simul- 

In an interview at a spiritual 
retreat in Mexico, Twitchell ex- 
plained that higher levels of 
consciousness can be reached 
without use of hallucinatory 
drugs which have become so 
popular on the American col- 
lege campuses and ruinous to 
the health of users. 

tance, meaning the past lives 
of anyone. Many who write for 
his prayers find their petitions 
fulfilled when their letters are 
dropped in the mails. 

"Anyone who depends on ar- 
tificial means for soul travel to 
reach God Consciousness, in- 
cluding drugs, hypnosis, yoga, 
and other means, do so at their 
own risk. The natural way 
which God gave man, which is 
Eckankar, is that for using his 
spiritual senses and power. 

"Since its our responsibility 
to live in this sort of realiza- 
tion much as possible without 

losing any of its effects in our 
daily personal life, then its on- 
ly reasonable that we take the 
way God has provided for us, 
and not the way that man 
wants to take to get there fast- 
er by artificial agents. Then all 
life becomes an illusion and he 
loses his responsibility to life 
and be comes a burden to soci- 

"Going to God in the natural 
way creates a joyous state and 
we live for all concerned, our 
family, mankind and God," 
Twitchell said in conclusion to 
the interview. 


Not So Good" 

Do conferences, publications, 
training institutes and other 
means of distributing educa- 
tional information really 

Two UMass School of Educa- 
tion researchers, armed with a 
$98,254 grant from the Charles 
F. Kettering Foundation, have 
begun a study that may an- 
swer this question. 

The study will examine a sel- 
ected group of the devices 
most commonly used by educa- 
tors for communication with - 
in their field — research and 
training institutes, funded de- 
monstration projects, profes- 

— Eckankar is the natural, ea- 
sy way of reaching God-Illu- 
mination. It's the oldest path to 
total consciousness, that abili- 
ity to be in all places at once. 
Its teachings are sweeping 
England and Europe, and gain- 
ing a foothold in this country. 
I predict that it will be the 
next big movement on the col- 
lege campuses of this country," 
he said. 

Eck, which is the short label 
for Eckankar, is not a yoga, 
religion, philosophy, metaphys- 
ical or occult system. It is 
merely a way to God-Realiza- 
tion via Soul Travel. 

It has nothing to do with 
psychic phenomena, ESP, As- 
tral Traveling, Table Tipping, 
Fortune Telling, Manifes- 
tations, or any similar stimu- 
lants which are the trademarks 
of many cults. It neither has 
anything to do with yoga, or 
any of the complex Indian me- 
taphysical and religious sys- 
tems. It is only a path to God 
via out-of-the-body-projection. 

According to an article on 
Paul Twitchell which appeared 
recently in an English maga- 
zine, he received his spiritual 
adeptship from Rebazar Tarzs, 
a high Tibetan Lama, whose 
retreat is in the western Him- 
alaya mountains, and initiated 
into a secret order of adepts. 

The article said that not only 
has he reached total conscious- 
ness, but able to read the aka- 
shic records of many at a dis- 

English Prof Takes Long Look At Collegian 


Dr. Mark Ratner of the U- 
Mass English department 
thinks the quality of the Col- 
legian is "not so good". In an 
interview, Dr. Ratner outlined 
several improvements the Col- 
legian could make. 

According to the professor, 
Editorial staff members need 
to learn better writing techni- 
ques. He considers editorials he 
has read "poorly written, sim- 
plistic and choppy. They jump 
from one idea to another with- 
out connection." 

Ratner finds the makeup 
especially on the front page, 
very dull. 

Revamping the policy on 
news content would also im- 
prove the paper in his opinion. 
He explains: "The paper 
should involve itself more 
strongly with national and in- 
ternational news. Often this 
news is more important than 
campus affairs. The paper 
should also report news which 
is particularly relevant to stu- 
dents. There should be cover- 
age of new education acts and 
of student problems in other 

Dr. Ratner also believes the 
Collegian should develop more 
explosive issues, such as a spe- 
cial March supplement on wo- 
men's regulations. 

Even though he believes the 

newspaper is not as good as it 
could be, Ratner rejects the i- 
dea of faculty control or cen- 
sorship. "I assume that stu- 
dents are adults and will exer- 
cise taste and judgment in pro- 
ducing this paper. There 
should be absolutely no re- 

straint on editorial opinions. In 
a college, we should be encour- 
aging students to form opin- 
ions," he stated. 

Dr. Ratner concluded: "the 
Collegian should provide an ex- 
ample to students and not an 

sional publications and profes- 
sional meetings. 

It will have two specific ob- 
jectives: to study the relation- 
ship between t he stated inten- 
tions and the field impact of 
these selected methods of dis- 
seminating educational infor- 
mation; and to systematically 
evant data on the selected dis- 
gather, organize and report rel- 
seminating agents so that the 
effectiveness of each can be 

By relating the intentions of 
these disseminating devices to 
perceivable outcomes, the re- 
searchers hope to provide in- 
formation about the educa- 
tional diffusion network that 
wiH be comparable to that now 
effective in many other fields," 
according to Dr. William C. 
Wolf, Jr., associate research 
professor of education and co- 
director of the project with Dr. 
John Fiorino, assistant profes- 
sor of education.

"Aus Deutscher Geschichte," 
(From German History), a 
graded textbook of readings in 
German by Dr. Werner Haas, 
assistant professor of German 
at UMass, has been published 
by Prentice-Hall, Inc., of En- 
glewood Cliffs, N.J. 

The book's five sections deal 
with five eras of German and 
Austrian history, beginning 
with the life and times of Jo- 
hannes Gutenberg and ending 
with an account of the 1944 
Hitler assassination attempt by 
a group of German officers. It 
is designed for both beginning 
and intermediate students. 

Dr. Haas is a native of Graz, 
Austria, with a Ph.D. from the 
University of Graz. He taught 
at Springfield College for eight 
years until 1964, when he join- 
ed the UMass faculty. A long- 
time faculty member of the 
Middlebury College Summer 
School, he has also served as 
director of studies at the Mid- 
dlebury Graduate School of 
German in Mainz, Germany.

Whims of a Few Cripples UM Budget 

Leaves Med School Accreditation in Jeopardy 


HOORAY ' Our Budget is back ! Or should I say, "What's left of 
our budget is back." After examining the figures, one conclusion that 
could be drawn is that the legislature must have received a new toy 
— a guillotine ! Now, I'm not knocking guillotines because we all 
know heads must roll. But they should rul! for sufficient reasons, not 
because of a whim of a few. There was so much cut ^pm the re- 
quested budget that a supplementary bill for an additional $2,869,611 
has been filed. 

No Pay ^oi^ Profs 

In the past, when a professor or faculty member was hired the 
salary given was the average salary for a person of his caliber. 
Eighty-eight new professors have been "hired" by the Amherst cam- 
pus They were promised the average starting pay. When the legisla- 
ture convened in their own little world they figured on starting these 
men at the minimum. After calculating with computers and slide 
rules, these elected officials came up with a figure. It wasn't even 
Hose. Now we start at a deficit of $500,000. Why the salaries were 
calculated at the minimum instead of the average is still unexplained. 

In addition to salary decreases, our lovable legislature cut an 
estimated $73,000 from travel expenditures. This is used to journey 
through the country in search of experienced men for our under- 
manned staff. Evidently our legislature surmized that these men 
would, come to us. 

A request was made for money to stack our under-volumed li- 
brary. The request was butchered. Why ? Certainly our library, 
which contains 450,000 volumes could use some beefing up. As Pro- 
vost Tippo surmized, "Our library should have a million volumes." In 

the future plans of the University is a 28 story library which will 
hold a million and a half volumes. With the supply we have ^now I 
believe there will be many empty rooms in that building. But, no 
loss, we could use a few more handball courts. 

Soutter - Even Zeus Needs Help 

For the Medical School there will be a requiem at 10 a.m. on 
Sunday. As it stands now, it is in the hands of the very capable Dr. 
Lamar Soutter. But sometimes even Zeus needs help. Money was 
asked for, to hire four men as department heads to assist Dr. Soutter 
in the planning of the curriculum. The money was turned down. Also 
turned down was $206,682 of the amount asked by the budget tor- 
librarv books for the Medical School. Without the library and with- 
out the four men, (whether the school receives accreditation is 
doubtful). Without accreditation we can get no federal aid. Hence 
the medical school will probably pick up the slogan of our Boston 
Red Sox — wait till next year. 

But in spite of this, the Legislature has a chance to get back In 
the ball game and really help the University. A bill is in the House 
now which has come to be known as the 2% bill. Presently, the ceil- 
ing salary for the University is $21,372. This is the top salary paid. 
Of 62 state universities 57 have no ceiling. Of the other five that do, 
they have exceptions. At (the Universities of) Michigan and Wash- 
ington, 22 posts receive a salary in excess of $22,000. Without this, 
how can competent men be hired? For instance, the Medical School. 
Some salaries "should go (to) $25,000 to $30,000 for the right men. 
What this bill will do is leave the ceiling for* the medical school and 
raise 2 C A of the present salaries over the present ceiling. This bill 
is essential for a quality university. It should be obvious to our leg- 
islature that this bill is necessary. But from past experiences it 
remains to be seen. Good Luck 2 % !

New Hours 
For Hatch 

Summer Reporter 

New Hatch hours were an- 
nounced this week. It will re- 
main open one-half hour long- 
er until 9:30 p.m. on two Sat- 
urdays on a trial basis. The 
two dates are tomorrow, July 
16, and July 30. On the Satur- 
day between those dates, the 
Hatch will close at 7:00 p.m. 
due to intersession. 

The agreement to extend the 
hours on a trial basis was 
reached by Dick Shinoff, 
Chairman of the Student Union 
Board of Governors, and Dr. 
Noffsinger, Director of the Stu- 
dent Union. Dr. Noffsinger 
said that the situation would 
be reviewed at the end of July. 
If the response to the new 
hours warrants the extension 
in terms of financial feasibilily 
the new hours will become per- 
manent. This means that stu- 
dents must buy in the last half 
hour, not just sit around. 

Dr. Noffsinger said that it 
was not feasible to extend 
hours during the week on a 
regular basis. On any given 
night, however, if the amount 
of sales warrants it, the Hatch 
will remain open one-half hour 
longer until 10:30. 

On Sunday. July 10, the 
Hatch will open at 7:00 a.m.

u . . . not getting built on time"--Univ. Treas. 

Commonwealth's Disinterest Cripples Univ. 

Bldg. Construction Bogged Down By Boston 


Summer Reporter 

While an upheaved circumference has lately pointed out the 

activity on, if not the progress of, the new administration building 

(expected to be completed by April, 1967), across campus another 

impression is given 

Dramatically highlighting de- 
lays in UMass construction is the 
conversion of Arnold House, for- 
merly a women's dormitory, to 
an office building for faculty. 

In early spring, one -to-be - 
evicted resident asked In the 
Collegian, "Why haven't the rea- 
sons been brought forth for this 
bold venture?" Belatedly the in- 

formation came forth from a 
concerned Dean of Women's Of- 
fice (not from the Housing Of- 
fice, not the Provost's Office) 
that about 100 new faculty had 
been hired, there was no other 
place to put them, and for only 
a couple of years, the house 
would be used. 
What the girls were told is, 

Arnold House, slated to be changed from a women's residence to 
offices for faculty, if the Boston delay-* are soon cleared up. 

in effect, what the Boston Globe 
wrote in a June story, "A Boom 
Turning into a Bust." 

Robert Levy reported that the 
Bureau of Building Construction 
(BBC) has been identified by 
UMass officials as the chief cause 
of delays. All tax-supported build- 
ing projects must be given the 
state agency's approval. 

"UMass officials say they've 
been stalled each step of the way 
on all current projects," the 
article said. 

Lederle, fearing an inability to 
accommodate projected enroll- 
ments with classrooms and other 
buildings not going up on sched- 
ule, suggested that the projects 
be taken out of BBC hands. 

A lack of a sense of mission 
or loyalty commitment to the 
University was one reason why 
"the buildings are not getting 
built on time," said Treasurer 
Kenneth W. Johnson to this re- 

The president has said, "I 
recommend that we at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts be giv- 
en the responsibility for getting 
our own buildings constructed. 
We have the necessary profes- 
sional personnel, the dedication 
and the sense of urgency to bring 
construction projects to comple- 
tion successfully and on time." 

Although Lederle character- 
ized the problem as being one 
of building, not of getting appro- 
priations, the University has cer- 
tainly had its share of difficulty 
in that respect. 

The proposed graduate re- 
search center is a perfect ex- 
ample of University problems. 
Since last December, according 
to Johnson, the bureau has been 
reviewing plans for the first 
phase, which includes a chem- 
istry "tower," a computer whig, 
and a technical library. 

The project cannot move for- 
ward until this years's appropria- 
tions bill is passed. Governor 
John Volpe's request of $10,527,- 

838 this year for the center would 
be added to some previously — 
approved six and a half million 
dollars, which has been unusable 
because of strings attached. 

In all fairness, said the Treas- 
urer, due to the technical pro- 
cedures of appropriating money 
and the fact that the Bureau of 
Building Construction cannot 
give the go-ahead until there are 
funds available, an entire year 
has been lost. 

Three related points were 
made. First, a self-liquidating 
like that which builds 
and dining facilities, 
would have no problem in se- 
curing additional funds — it 
would, after a Trustees' okay, 
merely issue another bond. Sec- 
ondly, because of these delays 
and mounting costs of construc- 
tion, 6% (or $960,000) is added 
per year to the costs of $16M. 
The third point is that if con- 

Study Surveys Students' Spending Sprees 

Already spent next month's al- 
lowance? Where does the money 
go? A recent survey has proven 
that college students don't have 
holes hi their pockets they just 
have more places to spend their 
money. "The college market (a 
predicted 9,000,000. by 1970), the 
survey concludes, spends the 
dollars that are available to 
them in a variety of ways." Here 
are a few examples. 

More than half of all college 
men own cars and 52% of these 
car owners pay $20 or more a 
month for gas. Only a fourth of 
the college women own cars but 
they still average up to $15 a 
month for gas. 

The girls may buy less gas but 
they eat as much food as their 

male counterparts. Girls con- 
sume over a million soft drinks 
each semester and devour close 
to two million candy bars! 
(Metrecal anyone?) 

The girls pull way ahead in the 
clothing department too, but the 
boys are rapidly closing the gap. 
Last semester 52% of the male 
students purchased a new suit 
and 92% became the proud own- 
ers of at least two new pairs of 
slacks. But the fact that 85% of 
the girls also bought at least two 
new pairs of slacks last semester 
leads one to wonder whose wear- 
ing the pants? 

According to the survey the 
men are Just as vain as the wom- 
en. (Girls had that figured out 
ages ago) 50.4% of the males use 

cologne at least once a day. But 
the girls win out again when you 
consider that 94% of them get 
up early each morning to put on 
the eye make-up they purchase. 

And the telephone . . . Now 
there's where the girls have dis- 
pelled a few nasty rumors. It's 
the boys who make over S mil- 
lion phone calls a semester while 
the girls run a close second with 
a little over two million calls. 

These are only a few of the 
places the money goes . . . and 
goes and goes. If the predictions 
are accurate the sum will only 
Increase as the college age group 
becomes more affluent. By the 
way, only two percent of the to- 
tal collegiate population own 
money belts!

February 1967, the University 
Will lose $3.5M in federal funds 
which have been allotted. Fur- 
thermore, the project has al- 
ready been cut back by the ad- 
ministration to give priority to 
other building needs. 

Another project presently is 
being revitalized. The planned 
Continuing Education Center, re- 
named the Campus Center, has, 
at the request of the Trustees, 
been withdrawn from the state 
capital outlay to be placed un- 
der the University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority. John- 
son mentioned that a second 
meeting with architects was 
held July 6. Construction begin- 
ning' next April is expected to 
be finished on the $11M project 
by the summer of 1968. 

More than half of the building 
will house student activities, and

Pointing to the obligations of 
the University to the public in 
expanding from an enrollment of 
12,000 to 24,800 by 1974, the au-

Reform Committee Strengthens Student Power 


With an increase in the growth 
of UMass, has come an increas- 
ing desire for efficiency. Peter 
Goodman, pro temp chairman of 
the University Reform Commit- 
tee, feels that while efficiency 
may be beneficial to the student 
body as a whole, it is deadly to 
the growth of the individual stu- 

One purpose of the Reform 
Committee is, in Goodman's 
opinion, "to keep down the effi- 
ciency of the University, so that 
individual students can be bet- 
ter educated." 

The increased enrollment, be- 
s ides bringing many problems, 

also brings mbre^tudents~whb 
are interested in working on 
these problems. 

In the fall, a number of dif- 
ferent groups were working on 
reforms, including a committee 

of the Young Independents. Vari- 
ous students and faculty mem- 
bers found out about this group 
and attended their meetings. In 
December, University Reform 
became independent of the Y.I.'s. 

Fast and Furious 

For three months, the commit- 
tee planned two conferences — 
one on academic, and one on so- 
cial affairs. At the second con- 
ference, students decided to cir- 
culate a petition demanding an 
end to women's sign-out sheets 
and curfews. 

After that, a group of about 
fifteen people worked fast and 
furiously to reform women's reg- 
ulations. With coffee hours in 
dorms, circuiatiorr of" the pett^ 
tion, and a letter-writing cam- 
paign to the Collegian, the Com- 
mittee started the action. By 
March, curfews were gone. 

But women's rules, Goodman 

emphasizes, is simply the prob- 
lem of the moment. "We have a 
lot more things to do, and they're 
going to be tougher to get." 

Among other areas, the Re- 
form Committee will be working 
for improvements in the require- 
ment system, the University Col- 
lege, and the BFA. They will also 
fight the proposed communica- 
tions board. 

A Healthy Sign 

Goodman feels that the time 
is ripe for the URC. "This is the 
time to help set University policy 
— while the University is still 
flexible, still growing." 

And students can, as evidenced 
by the recent abolishment of 
-eur fews, h el p to s e t po l icy . "Stu- 
dents," Goodman says, "are more 
aware of their power. This is a 
healthy sign." 

University Reform is now in 
the process of drafting a very 

The Continuing Education Center, another about-to-be or almost-was. The 287,000 square foot faci- 
lity will house student activities, adult education, conferences, and offices. It will also include

ing lecturers. 

loose constitution. For example, 
membership is being present at 
a meeting. Anyone who goes to a 
meeting, whether he's a student, 
a teacher, or a member of the 
administration, can vote. This 
way, anyone interested in reform 
can take part in the URC. 

Goodman feels that working on 
the Committee is educational. 
"You learn about democracy. 
You learn that you can tell city 
hall what to do." 

Reform Support 

Various UMass administration 
and faculty members seem to 
agree with Edward Eddy, Jr., 
President of Chatham College, 
about college activists. Quoted in 
the Oct. 18, 1965 issue of News- 
week, Eddy said, "For years wo 
have wanted a fire to burn. Let's 
not throw water on the first 

Mr. William Venman, Assis- 
tant to the Provost, said of the 
URC, "It's one of the best things 
that has happened on campus. It 
shows an aliveness on the part of 
the student body. It's much 
easier to have a dead student 

Prof. Joe Clayton said, "I'm in 
favor of reform if its truly re- 
form and not just change." Clay- 
ton thinks that students today 
are much more aware of almost 
everything than they were twen- 
ty years ago, and the formation 
of the URC is an indication of 
this. "This world situation now 
suggests change," Clayton said. 

Expressing his opinion, Mr. 
Robert Hopkins, Dean of Men, 
said, "I think anything that 
keeps people thinking is good." 
Hopkins feels that something like 
the Reform Committee "gets 
started because thinking people 
start thinking." 

Mr. William Tunis, Dean of 
Admissions, said of the newly 
formed group, "I think that stu- 
dents should question. That's 
part of the educational process. 
However, final decisions for 
changes must rest with the ad- 
ministration and faculty. Stu- 
dents have limited experience 
and don't always know what's 

Mr. Joseph Dellagrotte, Assis- 
tant Professor of History, has 
been interested in the URC since 
its conception. "This committee 
was formed," said Dellagrotte, 
"not just to analyze problem 
situations, but to change them." 

Dellagrotte feels 
formation of this 
shows th at^stt 

that the

"consciousness itself is of no use 
unless it is translated into ac- 

David Mallery, consultant to 
the College Student Personnel 
Institute, quoted in Newsweek, 
said that students who are activ- 
ists "are almost always intellect- 
ually powerful, not just 'bright' ". 

Reported in the same News- 
week article, some of the speak- 
ers at the American Council on 
Education condemned colleges 
for the fact that "only a minority 
of students really question their 
society or their education." 

Stanford's Joseph Katz said at 
the conference, "The present col- 
lege system is well designed to 
create docile students." 

Not a docile student, Peter 
Goodman thinks that working on 
University Reform helps a stu- 
dent to become a mature and re- 
sponsible adult, "not someone 
who will fit into a slot in so-

the Student Union Governing 
Board has approved a $10 per

1967 (making a total $30) in the 
S.U. fee, which will contribute 
to paying for it. 

Of other large projects, the

governor's UMass priority, is

The fine arts center will pro-

Since December 1965, architects

Johnson emphasized that the

is conditioned on what will be 
ready each September. Lederle 
gloomily predicted, "If we can't

going to be faced with a situa-

way things are in Irma La

being presented this summer by 
the University Repertory Thea- 

You see, there is this street- 
walker named Irma. She works 
hard every night and dutifully 
brings all the money back to the 
gang of mecs at the bar. One 
night a law student named Nes-

tor the Shabby wanders Into the 
bar, orders milk, and then de- 
mands that the mecs treat sweet 
Irma like a lady. 

Well, Irma and Nestor fall in 
love at that moment and start 
to live together. But there's a 
problem: Irma's profession. In 
their neighborhood, any self-re- 
specting woman puts out both 
her husband and the cat at night. 

Nestor finds a solution: she 
should catch a rich man and lim- 
it her business to him. Irma 
loves this idea — "You're bring- 
ing back a childhood dream!" 
Her rich lover, though, is Nestor 
in disguise, who works days pol- 
ishing floors to afford this night- 
time luxury. 

But Nestor is even jealous of

it. She sings in a booming voice 
that is always In command of

Bob Emerson's quiet, sensitive 
portrayal of Nestor compliments 
Miss Martin's vivacious Irma 
very well. His lovely tenor voice

At Storrs in Connecticut, Or-

sachusetts, Durham in New 
Hampshire, Kingston in Rhode 
Island and Burlington in Ver- 
mont, summer arts programs 
on state university campuses 
continue in most cases through 
the end of August. 

Summer theatre, a variety of 
art shows, film series, lectures 
?nd special events are offered. 
Almost all events are open to 
the general public; some with 
no admission charge. 

The University of Connecti-

seven productions this year at 
Storrs, Including "Who's A- 
fraid of Virginia Woolf?", 
"Look Back in Anger" and 

"UJS.A." There Is an every 
Monday film series at the U- 
Conn Student Union, which is 
also the scene of art shows and 
other special cultural events. 

The University of Maine cam- 
pus in Orono has nine art shows 
scheduled through the summer, 
plus a concert series and special 
lecturers. A resident company of 
college actors will present a six-

The more discriminating din-

after the 12:05 class dismissal. 
Rest assured, this is due to 
reasons of practicality, not aes-

rives at 12:15 is disconcerted to 
learn that "he who comes last 
shall not be first." He may 
even be in the state of trauma 
to discover that "the meek 
shall not inherit the earth"— 
or even a seat at the commons. 
As our friend thinks the unut- 
terable while standing in a 
double line which extends 
down the ramp, through the 
lobby, and out to the sidewalk, 
there appear to be three possi- 
ble solutions: 1) He may avail 
himself to the unpredictable 
mercy of the nameless and 
faceless line, and be late for 
his 1:00 class, 2 ) He may dine 
elsewhere in a fraction of the 
time, or 3) He may decide not 
to dine at all due to lack of 
funds, and attended his 1:00 p.m. 
class on time instead. None of 
these alternatives is complete- 
ly satisfactory. 

The hard facts are these: a 
total of 800 students must be 
accommodated at line 6 within 
a single hour. During the reg-

ular semesters line 6 handles 
1100 students within a span of 
2'/ 2 hours. In other words, only 
about 400 students are proc- 
essed then per hour. It is in- 
conceivable how the boarding 
hall directors expect to effici- 
ently process twice the number 
of students on a single line In 
an hour as they do during the 
regular academic year. 

Most of the aforesaid dis- 
criminating and discerning di- 
ners here are the special sum- 
mer frosh. They have needless- 
ly subjected themselves to an 
intolerable situation. They have 
allowed this great inconven- 
ience to be foisted upon them- 
selves, simply because they 
haven't been around long 
enough to know what the usual 
and proper conditions are in 
fact. That is not to say that 
the status quo must endure. 

We are, indeed, fortunate to 
have a boarding halls man- 

agement which keeps the stu- 
dents' interests foremost in 
mind. The decision to limit the 
lunch hour from 12:00 - 1:00 
was unavoidable due to the 
scheduling of classes. One solu- 
tion, however, would be to open 
line 7 to the students for that 
meal only. Either the South- 
west Complex or the North 
Commons could be utilized for 
conferences. Since the com- 
mons is a profit-making or- 
ganization (although the ad- 
ministration is hesitant to ad- 
mit it) the extra personnel re- 
quired to run line 7 could easi- 
ly be provided. 

The students deserve the 
convenience of expanded facil- 
ities, and, in short, the best 
that the University has to of- 
fer, ^speeuUly^s^cethe stu- 
dents pay for it. Those Who 
come last shall be first If they 
can take advantage of line 7, 
and the meek can at least in- 
herit the services owed them if 
they cease to be complacent 
and start insisting on it.

Hungarian Quartet 
Coming To UMass 

The Hungarian Quartet, which the Christian Science Moni-

gleaned for itself a universal recognition which very few cham- 
ber music organizations of our era can equal. With thousands 
of concerts to 

their credit on 
five continents, 
the members of 
the Hungarian 
Quartet have 

garnered such 
press comments 
as: "These four 
musicians of ex- 
perience have 
forged an ensem- 
ble remarkable 
for its sensitivity 
and cohesion" 
(New York 

Times); "It was 
a great concert, 
matchlessly play- 
ed" (Washington, D.C., Post). A 
Paris critic wrote: "If it is pos- 
sible to surpass perfection, this 
happened with the interpreta- 
tion of the last quartets of 
Beethoven," and from the Hol- 
land Festival: "We don't know

Executive Council Parleys With Lederle 


Summer Reporter 

A meeting of Pres. John W. Lederle with the four 
Summer Executive Council officers, held Monday, July 
11, wat; reported at the regular session Wednesday. 

John Lannon, Ann McGunigle, and Caryn Goldberg 
accompanied Council President Paul Schlosberg. In the 
45 minute discussion, Lederle heard the student repres- 
entatives' grievances, particularly relating to curfew, 
meal, library, and free swim hours. The University pres- 
ident, according to Schlosberg, referred the students to 
the respective persons-ln-charge. 

Announcement of the resignation of commuter Coun- 
cilor Dennis Boynton came midway in the evening large- 
ly devoted to SSEC procedural by-lavs. Boynton will 
not attend the second session as he planned. 

Present at the outset of the debate on how to fill the 
vacancy (there are six commuter seats) was Ralph 
Ritchie '67. The commuter told the Collegian that he 
would have run in the original election but he registered 

late. Lew Gurwitz of the RSO office informed Ritchie 
of the vacancy as he had been requested. 

Robert Sather, who missed being elected June 28 by 
one vote, arrived after debate got underway. He re- 
ceived a surprising and warm welcome from the Coun- 
cilors; they were considering whether themselves to 
"elect" Ritchie or, on Skip Davis' motion, to hold an- 
other election. 

Given that there were at least two interested candi- 
dates, a formal election, in the same manner as held 
originally, received approval. The proposal of next Mon- 
day as the election date was amended by Joe Ross to 
Wednesday, July 13. Nomination papers will be due at 
5 p.m. on Monday in the RSO office. 

In amending the motion, Ross asserted commuters 
might not hear of the vacancy In time to get their 
signatures in today as would have been required. Ritchie 
had not filed previously because he had not seen the 
Collegian until late on the day nomination papers were 

A second major item of business came last. Marshall 
Nadan motioned to send a letter to the Dean of Women 
making note of Council ratification of the summer 
Women's Judiciary. The composition and origin of the 
board, being tried for the first time (like the summer 
Men's Judiciary) during the summer, were described. 

Reasons for approving the body were cited by Nadan 
as being like those for the male equivalent the week 
before. However, the question of the classes of the 
Judiciary's members revealed that there were two fresh- 
men, provoking debate. 

A member of Emily Dickinson's Standards Board, the 
"Court of original Jurisdiction" for the Judiciary, given 
permission to speak on the floor, attempted to Justify 
the freshmen presence. It was pointed out, that one 
women's dormitory has a Standard Board of four swing- 
shifters and two upperclassmen. The fact that the dorm 
boards were democratically elected and the selection of

Mystery photo uncovered — page 4 





Inside the cage a gray-haired man squinted through his little, 
horn rimmed glasses at a hamper full of soiled tee-shirts. 

Behind him were six aisles lined with shelves containing athletic 
paraphernalia. Above, and slightly to the right of the hamper, was 
a window. 

Outside the window, a small, wiry young man with a crew cut 
stood in his jock strap. Kenny Keezer was a scatback on the 1961 
UMass football team. In one hand Keezer held a cleat and with the 
other he clung to the green wire cage. 

"I'm missing a spike in my cleat," said Keezer. 

"Let me see it, Keezaah," snapped the gray-haired man in a 
quick nasal tone. He was only slightly taller than the stunted Keezer. 
Hi head was small and round and his glasses had to bend out to 
reach his ears, which were precisely set off by his cropped hair. 

"I'll fix that for ya, Keezaah," the older man said and disap- 
peared down one of the aisles of the cage. 

As soon as the man in the cage passed from sight, Keezer's mouth 
curved into a sly smile and he reached inside the window and took a 
half-dozen tee-shirts in his hand. Suddenly, the gray-haired man re- 

"I caught ya, Keezah," he yelled, "You son of a gun."

Look Homeward Angel" Opens 

The UMass Summer Fine 
Arts Festival has announced 
the opening of the second pro- 
duction of its resident reper- 
tory theatre. Look Homeward, 
Angel, the Pulitzer Prize play 
by Ketti Frings, based on the 

Thomas Wolfe novel opened 
July 14 and will play through 
August 13 in alternating reper- 
tory with Irmm-La-Douce and 
The Importance of Being Ear- 

The Cinerama-size novel has 
retained much of Its scope in 
Mrs. Frings' stage version. The 
autobiographical nature of the 
original is preserved through 
the device of using Eugene 
Gant, the Thomas Wolfe proto- 
type, as the "innocent eye" who 
"sees" the play with us. By 
working It out as a memory 
play, Mrs. Frings has freed 
herself to include many epi- 
sodes from the novel, con- 
densed into "two hours' traf- 
fic." In spite of this episodic 
quality, the play is remarkably 
tightly-knit, with each act dra- 
matizing a stage in the devel- 
opment of Eugene's character, 
the climax occurring when he 
finally decides to leave home. 

Eugene is not really the cen- 
tral character; just as import- 
ant are Eliza Gant his mother, 
W. C. his father, and a group 
of lesser figures who people

ing bus trips in around the 
area to visit places of literary 
and historical interest. The In- 
stitute will end with a three 
week cross country tour. 

The ice cream and cake 
served at the reception was 
greatly welcomed by those per- 
spiring in the humid lounge. 
Mrs. Lederle, quietly and un- 
announced, dropped in at the 
reception and chatted briefly 
with a number of students. 

The most favorite general 
topic of conversation was Am- 
erican slang. Confused, but In- 
trigued, the Japanese students 
decided to play it cool and 
swing with the latest In Amer- 
ican lingo.

That's right. The Summer 
Student Executive Council isn't

perhaps, it has settled down to 
the reality of the difficulty of 
being students' representatives.

seat will be filled by election 
on Wednesday, July 13, in the 
Student Union. 

Nomination papers must be 
returned to the RSO office by

The Collegian welcomes dou- 
ble-spaced (at 60 spaces) let- 
ters from candidates. All let- 
ters must be signed and left in 
the office by noon on Sunday.

The original music of the Hot Nuts Is a product 
of the joint efforts on the part of all of the mem-

Every System Has Been Tried 


Any students dissatisfied 
with the UMass grading sys- 
tem can take consolation in the 
fact that almost every possi- 
ble system of grading has been 
tried at the university. 

Various Systems 

The systems have included 
100-point numerical grading, a 
system which gave more credit 
for English than chemistry, a 
ranking system and a plan 
which even included two types 
of F. 

The present quality point 
system, adopted in 1953, has 
been instrumental in raising 
the standards of the university 
to their present level, according: 
to administrators. 

In 1914, when the University 
was simply an agricultural 
school operating on a semester 
basis, grades were computed 
on a 100-point system. Sixty 
was a passing grade. The 100- 
point system was common in 

most schools at that time. 

In the mid-1920's, a compli- 
cated new system was institut- 
ed, based on the idea of giving 
credit for the two hours of 
preparation required for each 
lecture as well as for the class- 
work. Thus an English course 
which held three lectures a 
week would be worth 15 cred- 
its — three for each tenure and 
six more for the two hours of 
preparation for each class. 

But a chemistry course, with 
only one lecture and two-hour 
labs, which required no prep- 
aration, would be worth only 
seven credits. Of course this 
system made interpretations of 
the grades difficult, not only in 
relation to the 100 system at 
the university but also to sys- 
tems at other schools. 

In the late 1920's, a faculty 
study of their grading deter- 
mined that differences in the 
strictness of grading by indi- 
vidual professors were too 
great to be Ignored. 

The 7ctrtiA the Thing in Tu'utet 


What's happening here" It's a new game called Twister. You 
play it with a towel, a spinning arrow, a willing partner and some 
sand or grass. In the picture, the result of the game is in doubt, 
although it appears that different spins of the arrow necessitate 
placing different parts of your body on different parts of the 
towel. What takes the most courage however, is playing Twister 
on a crowded beach . . . alone. 

They found that a student 
who happened to get into cour- 
ses taught by the hardest 
marking teachers could easily 
flunk out, although another 
student of equal ability but 
with different teachers would 
do well. 

In 1929, as a result of these 
findings, the ranking system 
was recommended by the fac- 
ulty. Although this system was 
never adopted officially, some 
of the professors used It in de- 
termining their marks. The 
students were ranked In rela- 
tion to their classmates and 
then marked accordingly. 

The important result of this 
concept was that grades were^ 
passed to the heads of depart-" 
ments. The differences in the 
grading by the professors be- 
came obvious pnd adjustments 
were made. 

Credit System 

In 1932, the complicated cred- 
it system was dropped and the 
standard three credits for three 
hours of classwork system was 
adopted, although the numeri- 
cal system was retained. Under 
this system it was possible for 
a student to graduate with a 
60 average in all his courses. 
This was called a "gentleman's 

There were also two types of 
F under this system. If a stu- 
dent's average for the semester 
was below 60, he would not be 
allowed to take the final exam 
and would get an F with no 
credit, computed as a 50. If he 
took the final and flunked, he 
had the right to take a condi- 
tional exam. If he passed he 
would earn an F with credit, re- 
corded as a 55. 

Under direction of President 
Jean Paul Mather, and In keep- 
ing with the growing trend of 
grading throughout the U.S., 
the University of Massa«hu- 
setts adopted the quality point 
average (Q PA) system in 1953. 
This system includes the use 
of letter grades. Although cut- 
ting points were only 1.6 for 
seniors and 1.3 for freshmen, 
many students were flunked 
out because of the higher stan- 

"The slaughter was terrific 
the first term," according to 
Marshall Lanphear, retired Un- 
iversity registrar. 

"We finally voted that we 
couldn't flunk more than 10 
per cent of each class," he add- 

Grades Upped 

The new system created 
many problems in converting 
the old percentage grades to 
the QPA system, and in inter-

preting the new grades. Also, 
the cutting points and honors 
were experimented with for 
many years before the present 
levels were adopted. 

Many professors, notably in 
the math and science depart- 
ments, still use the numerical 
averages to compute their let- 
ter grades for the semester. 

The feeling on campus seems 
to be that the QPA system has 
been a major factor in raising 
the academic performance of 
students. Under higher stand- 
ards, students operate on a 
higher level of performance, 
according to this logic. 

There are several failings of 
the quality point sys tem, h ow- 

ever. The most obvious and no- 
torious is that it makes no dis- 
tinction between the student 
who earns a 70 and one who 
earns a 79. Second, there is no 
way to record an A + . 

According to William Ven- 
man, assistant provost, about 
50 per cent of the students are 
satisfied or apathetic about 
QPA and the other 50 per cent 
desires a change. But there is 
no agreement on what the 
changes should be, and as a 
result there is no concerted 
movement for grading reform. 

But that doesn't mean no ef- 
fort for change is being made. 
The Academic Affairs Commit- 
tee of the Student Senate has 
submitted to the Faculty Sen- 
ate a recommendation that 
each student be allowed to take 
one course on a pass or fail 
basis. This would give students 
a chance to take courses they 
desire but are apprehensive 
about taking for fear of lower- 
ing their average. 

Grades Aren't 

The faculty is allowed a wide 
lattitude in methods of deter- 
mining their averages for their 
final semester grade, and some 
professors do not give any 
marks during the semes-er but 
only indicate to the i-:<.<dent 
how he is doing in the course. 

Prof. William Ross, of the 

Physics department, has never 
given a grade on an exam or 
report in 33 years of teaching 
at the University. He feels that 
if a grade is placed on the pa- 
per then that is all the student 
looks at. If there is none, he 
will read the comments and 
corrections to determine how 
he has done on the exam. 

"I would like the whole col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences to 
try this method/' Ross stated. 
"Grades are not what a student 
should try to get out of a 
course, and I have had stu- 
dents write back to me after 
graduating and thank me for 
proving this to them," he add 

Although grades are not the 
primary reason for being in 
college, and the student should 
attempt to learn as much as 
he can from every course, he 
should appreciate the fact that 
the present system has evolved 
through the trial and error of 
many years.

He's Still Counting T-Shhts, But Keezer Is Cone 

(Continued from page 1) 

Keezer, astounded, dropped the tee-shirts. "What? What d'ya 
mean. I was just wiping off my— HOLY JOCK STRAPS!" he yelled, 
pointing to one of the aisles. "Look! A rat! A little gray rat!" 

The man in the cage looked at the creature which ran down the 
aisle and out of sight. 

The shocked Keezer looked at 
the gray-haired man. "How did 
a rat get in your cage? . . . This 
is an omen," he said. "From this 
day on you will 'be known as Rat- 

Thus was born this dark fig- 
ure of the Curry Hicks building, 
this avenger of tee-shirt thieves, 
Katman, alias Tom Bishko, State 
U. employe. Dedicated to the war 
against crime, Batman (Rat to 
his friends) has been successfully 
waging a battle to maintain the 
$30,000 in athletic equipment 
horded hi the Rat Cage. 

Actually, Bishko's duties in- 
clude a lot more than being a 
guard of the equipment. With 
the expansion of the University, 
the athletic teams and Bishko's 
responsibilities have increased in 
size and number. 

Born of Ukrainian descent on 
a small farm in Hadley, Bishko 
served as an infantryman in Italy 
during WWII. In 1947 he came to 
the athletic department under 
the recently deceased Curry 
Hicks. Hicks, says Bishko, was a 

"fine fellow" who came to the 
then Mass. Aggie in 1911. He was 
largely responsible for the con- 
struction, in 1930, of the phys-ed 
building named atfer him. 

Bishko reveals that when War- 
ren P. McGuirk became dean of 
the School of Physical Education, 
changes followed. McGuirk 
cleaned out all the old Junk and 
". . . almost cleaned me out, too, 
but I survived," says Bishko. 

Bishko, who holds the title of 
storekeeper, remembers the 1956 
baseball squad as one of the 
greatest of all UMass teams. Al- 
though the team went to the Na- 
tionals in Omaha that year, the 

the girl a quarter and told her to 
"go buy a frappe." However, the 
girl, Miss Nancy Vollinger, had 
different ideas. She insisted that 
Bishko take her out for a frappe. 
"That's how I got trapped," says 
Bishko. They're now married and 
live in Hadley with their two 

The athletic equipment depart- 
ment has expanded greatly in the 
20 years of Bishko's reign. In his 
first five years he handled both 
phys-ed and athletic teams. Now, 
however, phys-ed has developed 
into a separate entity and there 
are three full-tune men in the 
athletic department — some fair- 
ly specialized such as Charlie 
Safran, who is primarily respon- 
sible for football equipment. 
From five sports in 1947 the ath- 
letic program has expanded to 13

Hungarian Quartet Here, 
Performing Tonight 

A Bartok work whose pre- 
miere helped establish the in- 
ternational fame of the Hun- 
garian Quartet will be featured 
Friday evening, July 15 at the 
University of Massachusetts. 

The whole career of the Hun- 
garian Quartet has been close- 
ly associated with the name of 
their compatriot, composer Be- 
la Bartok. As young students 
at the Royal Academy in Bud- 
apest, where Bartok was a 
teacher, the members of the 
quartet came under his influ- 
ence during the 
early 1930's. 

One of . the 
first major 
tasks the Hun- 
garian Quartet 
undertook was 

er at the Festival of the Inter- 
national Society for Contempo- 
rary Music in Barcelona were 
successes that made the newly- 
formed quartet famous almost 

At the Friday UMass con-

equipment man couldn't get" 
anywhere with them. Whenever

house patterned after Wolfe's 
own home. Eliza makes a good 
stage figure, with her dogged 
determination to keep a practi- 
cal outlook in a family of ro- 
mantic dreamers, and W. C. 
provides humour and pathos as 
her prisoner. 

Actually, like most plays 
written in the novelist's tech- 
nique, Look Homeward, Angel 
has a group protagonist. This 
has two very important advan- 
tages: First of all, a group pro- 
tagonist has a group goal — 
Blrs. Frings uses this to equate 
the objectives of the various 
characters, and show the many 
sides of her theme of individ- 
ual freedom and longing for 
greener grasses. 

The family seeks escape 
from Eliza and the boarding- 
house, but Eliza seeks a free- 
dom from want, idleness and 

loneliness as well in the fantas- 
tic energy she dispenses on the 
boarders and the tyrranical 
hold she exercises over the 
family. The second advantage 
has to do with audience-appeal. 

A group protagonist implies 
several individuals of contrast- 
ing characters in conflict, and 
each member of the audience 
can identify with the figure of 
his choice. To him, be it moth- 
er, father, brother or girl 
friend, that figure becomes the 
"hero," and the play is inter- 
preted accordingly. 

The play was a tremendous 
success on Broadway, with An- 
thony Perkins as Eugene, his 
first big starring role, and 
Hugh Griffith (Squire Western 
in Tom Jones) as W. C. (J ant.

Both Critics Laud "Angel" 

Theatre's Effort Deemed Good, Nearly Great 


Years ago, when Mrs. Ketti Frings decided to write 
a stage adaptation of Thomas Wolfe's Look Homeward, 
Angel, someone should have told her not to do it. To 
capture the tone and meaning of a 500 word novel in a 
three-act play is perhaps too great a task for even the 
greatest of playwrights. As it stands Mrs. Frings' play 
does succeed in capturing some of Wolfe's magic and 
feeling, but becomes rather tedious in the process. 

In spite of all the play's shortcomings, Cosmo Cata- 
lano's production of it for the University Summer Re- 
pertory Theatre has a great deal to offer area audi- 
ences. In its initial two performances of the play, this 
past weekend, the resident company produced a few 
moments of really fine theatre, and a few of the com- 
pany's members turned in highly commendable per-

and still be completely captivated by Ted Davis as young

Scholar, Author and Playwright 
To Teach at Second Session 

An internationally - known 
authority on Irish literature 
and drama will be a visiting 
professor during the second 
summer school term beginning 
July 26 at UMass. 

Dr. Robert Joseph McHugh, 
scholar, author and playwright, 
will conduct a seminar in Irish 
literature and a course in mas- 
terpieces of western literature 
during the six-week term. 

Dublin-born Dr. McHugh is 
a Senior Lecturer in English at 
University College In Dublin, 
where he has been a member 
of the faculty since 1930. 

His plays include "Trial" and 
"Rossa," produced at the Ab- 
bey Theatre, Dublin, and "Rog- 
er Casement," written in col- 
laboration with Alfred Noyes 
and produced in Waterford, 
Dublin and Liverpool. 

Among his publications are 
"Henry Grattan," a biography 
(Dublin 1936, New York 1937); 
an edition of Newman's "Dis- 
cussions on University Educa- 
tion" (Dublin 1944); "The Let- 
ters of W. B. Yeats to Kathar- 
ine Tynan" (Dublin 1953, New 
York 1954); essays in "The 
Great Famine," (Dublin and 
New York 1957); and "The 
Shaping of Modern Ireland," 

He has written on Irish writ- 
ing In American, English, Ger- 
man, Italian and Icelandic jour- 
nals and encyclopedias. He Is 
now completing a study of An- 

glo-Irish literature for Mac- 
millan in London. 

Dr. McHugh received B. A. 
and M. A. degrees from Uni- 
versity College in Dublin and 
was awarded his Ph.D. on pub- 
lished work in 1947 from the 
National University of Ireland. 
He has been a visiting profes-

Using this premise, Mrs. Eliz- 
abeth W. Van Guilder of Shel- 
burne has made an unusual di- 
alectological study of the town 
of Colrain that began as an 
honors thesis while she was a 
senior at the University of 
Massachusetts and is now be- 
ing prepared for publication. 

Dialectology is linguistic ge- 
ography — the study of how 
language changes from region 
to region, the interpretation of 
these changes and the exami- 
nation of the factors that 
cause them. 

Mrs. Van Guilder is a house- 
wife and the mother of three 
children, the youngest eight, 
another in college in Iowa and 
the oldest married and an Air 
Force officer. She is a New 
York state native who moved 
to this area 12 years ago when 
her husband became produc- 
tion manager of the Kendall 
Co. textile mill in the Gris- 
woldville section of Colrain. 

She set out four years ago to 
finish a college career that was 
interrupted when she left Hart- 
wick College In Oneonta, N. Y., 
after completing two years. 

Mother of Three Now Publishing 

She took night courses, exten- 
sion courses, went to the Uni- 
versity part-time, and finally 
attended UMass for three sem- 
esters as a full-time student, 
receiving her A.B. degree in 
February of this year. She will 
begin teaching English at San- 
derson Academy in Ashfleld in 

Her Colrain dialectological 
study was done with Miss Aud- 
rey R. Duckert, UMass associ- 
ate professor of English, as ad- 
visor. Miss Duckert is a spec- 
ialist in language history and 
an active writer and field re- 
searcher in the field of linguis- 
tic geography. 

One of the first major works 
in the linguistic geography 
field was the Linguistic Atlas 
of New England, published in 
1939. For the past four years, 
Miss Duckert and her students 
have been re-studying some of 
the communities fevered by 
the old atlas in a project called 
Linguistic Atlas of New Eng- 
land Revisited.

original study for the 1939 at-

Exec. Council Must Go Further 

by PAT PETOW, Summer Staff 

Absence of an agenda seemed to hamper the 
efficiency and effectiveness of last Wednesday's 
Summer Student Executive Council meeting. But 
a formal plan of proceeding, of what and when to 
consider matters, will be available and used in the 
future according to the president. 

Friday at 5 p.m. was set, In fact at that meet- 
ing, as the deadline for items to be placed on the 

If one could be sure that an agenda would have 
solved all of the problems of the last meeting, one 
would be optimistic Indeed. 

Setting an election to fill a vacancy, naming 
committees, setting penalties for absences and 
tardiness of members were accomplished at the 
meetings. Although one might think that these 
should have been considered at charter provisions, 
the only thing wrong with their disposition was 
the already-mentioned lack of an agenda. 

If the three items were part of a charter, as 
they may still be, they would have had the 
"agenda-advantage" of being proposed In written 

form and announced to members before the meet- 

But besides just knowing what's coming up, the 

Council must go one step further. 

The Council, probably In committee, must do 
some hard homework. Before a demand is made 
to extend library hours, the Council should bear In 
mind that the library keeps a count of how many 
students use most of the facilities. 

Introduction of "working" air conditioning may 
change the amount of library patronage. But the 
student representatives have an even better source 
of backing than supposition. The Councilors might 
go to their constituents and then go to the library 
authorities and be specific. 

Services of the librarians at the reference desk 
is vital for summer freshmen. But perhaps a little 
pamphlet answering the common questions would 
do as well. 

Access to books on reserve is also essential to 
students. But perhaps If students were allowed to 
take the books overnight earlier In the day, they 
would not care if all the building were open. 
(Continued on page ^) 

Van Guilder's contemporary 
study, in her words, "because 
it has apparently changed less 
in character and composition 
than most American towns 
and villages." 

Linguistic scholars have been 
studying regional American 
English for many years in 
many parts of the U.S. and 
Canada under the auspices of 
the American Dialect Society, 
which has been gathering ma- 
terial for nearly three-quarters 
of a century for its proposed 
dictionary of regional English. 
Mrs. Van Guilder did her Col- 
rain study with the hope that 
it might contribute to this dic- 
tionary, and might also add to 
the sum of knowledge about 
how the American language 
grows and changes. 

Colrain. in Franklin County- 
just south of the Vermont 
line, has approximately 1450 
people in its hilly, 43.2 square 
miles. Many are farmers; some 
work in the Kendall mill, the 
town's sole industry. Colrain 
has two main ethnic groups: 
the Yankee descendants of the 
early Scotch-Irish and English 
settlers and those of French- 
Canadian background. 

Mrs. Van Guilder sampled 
the Colrain speech in a series 
of taped interviews with nine 
selected Colrain residents, cho- 
sen to provide as representa- 
tive a cross section as possible 
of ethnic and cultural back- 

The heart of each interview 
was a 75-item questionnaire 
dealing with the vocabulary of 
the home, farm and country 
and calling for common defini- 
tions. Sample questions: What 
do you call a small, rounded 
hill? What do you call a heavy 
metal pan used for frying? 

One of the purposes of any 
dialectological study, according 
to Mrs. Van Guilder, is to dis- 
cover features of folk speech 
still retained in a dialect area. 
These are called relics. Anoth- 
er is to discover Innovations — 
replacement of local terms and 
pronunciations by standard 
American forms. 

According to Mrs. Van Guild- 
er, several relics were picked

Eugene Gant. He is so entirely

he does so much to transform in-

Sharing the acting laurels with 
Mr. Davis are Susan Leich as

tically flawless. She overcomes 
some of the difficult moments 
of the play and gives them a

consin and at Indiana Univer- 
sity and has lectured on Irish 
literature and drama at several 
universities in this country and 
Europe, among them Harvard, 
the University of California in 
Berkeley, the Universities of 
Stockholm and Uppsala in Swe- 
den, the University of Oslo in 
Norway, the University of Ice- 
land and Cambridge University 
in England. 

In 1960. 1961 and 1964 he lee- 

Mr. Mennen is excellent. He 
plays Gene's disillusioned older 
brother with a fine sense of the 
part and a real depth of feeling. 

Pat Freni, who is well-known 
in the area for past performances 
with the University Theatre, 
should disappoint nobody as W. 
O. Gant. He conveys beautifully 
the sense of a man who once 
possessed and was possessed by 
some of the same dreams that 
are part of Eugene. The dreams 
have become only memories for 
him, crushed as Ben's are, as 
Gene's might be, by the over 
powering will of Mrs. Gant. 

Among the rest of the per- 
formances, there are some good, 
a few that are merely adequate, 
and one that la a slight disap- 
pointment. Rita Crosby, as Laura 
James, with whom Gene falls 
in love, does not live up to the 

tured at the Yeats Internation- 
al Seminar in Sligo, Ireland, 
which he was instrumental in 

His awards include the Ab- 
bey Theatre Prize, 1945; Re- 
search Fellowship of the Coun- 
cil of Europe, 1953; and the 
Italian Pitre Essay Prize, 1958. 
He is a member of the Amer- 
ican Committees for Irish Stu- 
dies, of the European Associa- 
tion for American Studies, and 
of the Society of Authors in 

high standards of the company 
or the equally high standards 
that she has set through her past 
performances. Hopefully what- 
ever is holding Miss Crosby down 
will disappear during the run of 
the play. 

One final word of well-earned 
praise. It was not just the ex- 
cellent acting and good direction 
that made Dixieland become real. 
Dale Amlund has designed a set 
that turns the little stage in 
Bartlett into a remarkably good 
playing space. This is probably 
the finest set Mr. Amlund has 
designed during his work here 
in Amherst. 

Look Homeward, Angel, is, in 
very simple terms, not the play 
to miss. It may drag in places, 
but to be captured by the terrific 
excitement of moments of nearly 
great theatre, isn't it worth a 
few bad spots? The answer is 
definitely yes. 

A power- Hungry Mother 
Shatters Hopes, Plans, Dreams 


(Continued from page 1) 
There is Laura James, a pretty 
twenty-three-year-old who comes 
to the boardinghouse in Alta- 
mont, North Carolina, In the 
summer of 1916 to escape the 
responsibility of marriage. She 
and Eugene fall deeply, sincerely 
in love. But she realizes she must 
leave this sweet interlude of 
sharing dreams and holding 
hands under a Southern moon 
and packing picnic lunches and 
return to the : "uMt> of a waiting 

Then there is Eliza Gant, 
Eugene's mother, who moves her 
family from the home her hus- 
band built into the "barn" she 
turns into a boardinghouse. Here 
her own family must wait until 
the boarders (Mr. Gant describes 
them as a "parade of pimps and 
prostitutes posing as retired danc- 
ing masters and part-time school- 
teachers.") have eaten and never 
have a bed of their own. 

Known as the shrewdest trader 
in town, her life revolves around 
making money from real estate 
deals and the boardinghouse. To 
her, owning property makes a 
person successful, and everything 
and everybody are property to be 
possessed. "Look, he doesn't turn 

away from me anymore," she 
says as she clings to her dead 
son Ben. "Let him go. Mama," 
the others reply. 

She sells Mr. Gant's refuge, 
the shop where he carves head- 
stones. Eugene begs his father 
not to sign the papers, telling 
him to hold on to his dream of 
someday creating the angel. But 
Mr. Gant's spirit is broken — "I 
probably never could have done 
it anyway." He now makes one 
attempt to leave all this unhappi- 
ness, but he is miserably de- 
feated by his cunning wife. 

Yet Mr. Gant begs Eugene to 
leave before his spirit is broken, 
too. And finally he does. "Thank 
you for nothing. Mama. No, 
thank you for all the years of 
loneliness" are his departing 
words. He goes off to find the 
world and happiness. But then 
he hears the voice of his brother 
Ben telling him It is useless to 
search for such things — "You are 
your world." 

* • • 

The play itself is fascinating, 
a study of drowning people pull- 
ing others down with them. Most 
young people will be able to iden- 
tify with Eugene and his need 
for independence. The cast does 
a competent job of presenting 

the play, which moves along 
briskly under the direction of 
Cosmo Catalano. 

Yet It is the play itself that 
makes the evening so fruitful, 
not the general level of perform- 
ance. This is certainly not an 
easy play, and perhaps the actors 
need more time to get used to 
their roles. At the moment they 
are afraid to let their roles pos- 
sess them, to really become the 
people they are portraying. 

The exception is Ted Davis, 
who plays Eugene. It was prob- 
ably easier for him to feel the 
role of a creative, searching 
young man than it was for the 
others to feel their roles. Emo- 
tion flows through his limber 
body— his eyes, his hands, his 
heaving chest — every muscle is 
tense, responsive. Every word 
has meaning, yet his speeches 
never become sentimental. 

The play is well worth seeing 
now, and if the other actors can 
bring themselves up to Ted 
Davis' level, the production will 
be a very moving experience. It 
is good theatre now, and hope- 
fully after living a few more 
weeks with their roles, the com- 
pany will be able to make Look 
Homeward, Angel, into great

One of modern medicine's 
most potent weapons in the 
never-ending war against di- 
sease is the radioisotope, a by- 
product of the atomic age. 

Medical diagnosticians use 
this information *o detect a 
wide range of disorders, in- 
cluding brain cancer and kid- 
ney and liver diseases. In addi- 
tion, a host of illnesses can be 
treated with the use of radio- 
isotopes. For example, radia- 
tion from iodine-131 is used to 
destroy cancer of the thyroid. 

Just how far we have ad- 
vanced into the world where 
science fiction is fast becoming 
fact is the almost blase attitude 
with which many Americans 
observe the tremendous feats 
being accomplished by NASA's 
Manned Space Flight Explora- 

UFOs (Unidentified Flying 
Objects), recently the subject 

have already become part of 
everyday life. 

After years of experimenta- 
tion and trial-run operation, 
Britain developed a hovercraft, 
a kind of earth bound, inflata- 
ble saucer that flies or, more 
accurately, skims on a cushion 
of air. This hovercraft has now 
begun a regularly scheduled 
ferry run at 50 knots an hour 
across the English Channel 
from Ramsgate to Calais. 

These unique craft, which 
are neither boats, planes nor 
cars would have been worthy 
of Jules Verne. As a matter of 
fact, he did describe an air ship 
which could skim above the 
surface of the water. Modern 
ACVs skim the surface on a 
cushion of air created by a hor- 
izontally-mounted exhaust fan 
which forces air downward and 
provides lift. Forward propul-

casual use of radar equipment 
and the latest navigational aids 
that make the ACV Bay cross- 
ing smooth, quick and safe, 
even during the infamous Gol- 
den Gate fogs. 

Perhaps every scientific re- 
search project is not designed 
to benefit us today. But think 
of all our tomorrows! 

Stanfield Announced Head 
Of Problem Child Program 

The first program in the U.S. designed specifically to enlist 
the skills and experience of organized labor in the battle against 
youth delinquency is being planned by the Labor Relations and Re- 
search Center at UMass. 

With a $72,274 grant from the U.S. Department of Health, Edu- 
cation and Welfare, the UMass Labor Center will launch an informa- 
tion program, sponsor a statewide conference and hold a series of 
workshops over the next year and a half, all designed to increase 
the contributions by Massachusetts labor unions in developing train- 
ing and job placement programs for hard-core delinquent youths. 

UMass sociologist Robert E. Stanfield, who planned the pro- 
gram, defined the "hard-core youth." for whom the program is de- 
signed as "those adolescents who have had an experience of or a 
high likelihood of involvement with the law and who have been raised 
in what may be called the culture of poverty." 

He defined these general aims: to inform union leaders and 
members of the federal, state and local resources available for train- 
ing and placement; to inform the same union personnel what is being 
done in these areas by other U.S. unions; to assist labor leaders to 
develop new concepts of roles that union leaders might adopt in 
helping deprived youth and to provide workshops and technical as- 
s istance in developing these new roles; to provide consultative serv- 
ices to union leaders to aid solving of training and employment 
problems; and to provide assistance to labor groups in opening new 
opportunities for training and placement. 

An early program step, according to Prof. Ben B. Seligman, di- 
rector of the UMass Labor Center, will be contacting and seeking the 
cooperation of labor leaders, labor councils, and others in the labor 
movement throughout the state. The statewide conference is planned 
for September, either at the UMass in Amherst or in Boston; it will 
bring together labor leaders, community service personnel, educators, 
state officials and others from Massachusetts, nearby states and the 
federal government. The conference will explore in a general way 
the role labor unions may play as a direct community force in pro- 
grams of vocational training and placement. 

As a follow-up to the conference, the UMass center plans a series 
of workshops with unions and interested community groups in the 
six major urban areas of the state over a one-year period. The work- 
shops will focus on the specific mechanisms by which labor unions 
may take a new or more active role in training and placement pro- 

Dr. Stanfield calls the project "an innovation in programs for 
the control and prevention of delinquency and crime." He said: 
"Other conferences and workshops have focused on school personnel, 
social workers, law enforcement officials, civic leaders, judges. This 
project proposes to approach a group of skilled individuals who 
might be able to make a contribution to the problem of controlling 
and preventing delinquency and crime by providing vocational train- 
ing and opportunities to hard-core youth. This project is distinctive 
in approaching persons in the labor movement as a source of man- 
power and skills in action against delinquency." 

Much of the activity of the project will be carried on by a pro- 
gram staff directed by Mrs. Frances Olrich and by a research staff 
headed by Robert Smith.

Food and Drug Admin. Hunts LSD, 
FDA Chief Calls Druq Pure Bunk' 

The Collegiate Press Service 

special corps of undercover a- 
gents is going into action on col- 
lege campuses and elsewhere to 
combat the illicit manufacture, 
sale, and use of the mind-ex- 
panding drug LSD, the Food 
and Drug Administration has 

FDA Commissioner James L. 
Goddard said LSD has been un- 
der intensive investigation by 
medical researchers since it was 
discovered by accident in 1943, 
and that no legitimate medical 
use has ever been found for it. 

Asked what he thought of the 
widely-published claim that LSD 
"expands" the mind and makes 
possible a sort of mystical spiri- 
tual experience, Dr. Goddard 
snapped, "Pure bunk." 

"It's an extremely dangerous 
drug that can precipitate serious 
psychiatric illness or even sui- 
cide," he added. 

Goddard said that no one real- 
ly knows how widespread the 
current LSD fad is. "You hear 
loose talk about 30 per cent of 
college students using LSD, but 
I know of no reliable data on 
the extent of the usage," he 

said. "That's one of the things 
we're trying to find out now." 
Goddard said the FDA, toge- 
ther with the National Institute 
of Mental Health, would attempt 
to discover how widespread a- 
buse of LSD has become. 

"Along with this will be an 
educational effort aimed at col- 
lege students and others who 
seem to be particularly at risk, 
to try to acquaint them with the 
dangers and to counteract this 
dangerous publicity that others 
have put forth advocating the 
use of the drug for mystical ex- 
perience," Dr. Goddard said. 

He revealed that special in- 
vestigators are in training now 
at the University of California 
at Berkeley.

On Sundays the library is open 
1 between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. Per- 
haps students returning from a 
weekend at home would find 
seven hours more useful between 
3:30 and 10:30. 

The Council must act on the 
knowledge that the funds to run 
the library are limited. To have 
the library open 24 hours and not 
able to buy a new batch of books 
is not easily justified. 

The Council should go to the 
students and ask them what they 

want. According to casual obser- 
vation at the library this sum- 
mer, study is not a reason for 
demanding extended hours. 

In-the-regular-year, the re-

through the Radical Education 

REP, as the project is known, 
is a return to the type of pro- 
gram envisioned when SDS first 
became organized. Then, as now, 
the idea was one of radical ed- 
ucation, "dedicating itself to the 
cause of democratic radicalism, 
and aspiring to the creation of a 
new left in America," as stated 
in the REP prospectus. 

The theme is not new, it has 
merely been interrupted. In 19- 
£3, action took precedence nver . 
analysis; marches, pickets and 
sit-ins were the operational base 
of the new left. 

Soon people became "weary 
and leery" of the protestors. 
Members and non-members a- 
like called for analysis rather 
than action and change initiated 
through education.

Summer Repertory Theatre Goes On, 
Riding High with Third Production 

Speech Therapy Clinic 
Serves As Laboratory 

After two successful openings 
this season, the University of 
Massachusetts Summer Reper- 
tory Theatre added its third play 
to the schedule Wednesday, July 
20 through Friday, July 22. The 
Importance Of Being Earnest, 
Oscar Wilde's comedy of wit, 
will be presented in rotation 
with Irma-La-Douce and Look 
Homeward, Angel through Au- 
gust 13. 

The Importance Of Being 
Earnest is a difficult play to de- 
fine. Although it is essentially a 
farce, its style is close to that 
of high comedy. The chief ob- 
ject of the play is to make 
clever, unexpected statements on 
society, but the plot and char- 
acters are totally improbable. 

One of the very refreshing 
things about the play is its total 
lack of reality. Time, for Wilde, 
has stopped, and a story develops 
which would be totally ridicu- 
lous, actually somewhat tragic, 
in the real world. 

A young man is supposed a 
foundling, he cannot marry the 
girl of his choice because he 
does not know who his parents 
are. In addition, he has deceived 
her into thinking that his name 
is Ernest. His best friend is in 
love with "Ernest's" ward, and 
has deceived her into thinking 
that his name is Ernest. 

The totally improbable chain 
of events leading to the de- 
nouement of this plot is pure 
farce, in the style of the French 
farces of the nineteenth century 
and of the play-operas of Gil- 
bert and Sullivan, but the lan- 
guage smacks of that greatest 
period of English comedy, the 
Restoration ( 1660-1700 ) : 

I am not in favor of long en- 
gagements. They give people 
the opportunity of finding out 
each other's character before 
marriage, which I think Is 
never advisable. 

You've wonderfully good taste, 
Ernest. It's the excuse I've al- 
ways given for ycur leading 
such a bad life. 

To lose one parent, Mr. Wor- 
thing, may be regarded as a 
misfortune; to lose both looks 
like carelessness. 

It's a very ungentlemanly 
thing to read a private cig- 
arette case. 

The flashes of wit are more 
frequent in this play than in any 
other in the English language 
since The Way Of The World 
(1700). Of Wilde's plays, Ear- 

nest is the best, the others be- 
ing "well-made" social plays of 
a moralistic nature. Earnest, 
however, is theatre for its own 
sake, a brilliant comedy in which 
wits conflict as much as char- 

The production is being di- 
rected by Vincent Brann, a pro- 
fessor in the UMass theatre de- 
partment who directed last sea- 
son's highly successful Rainmak- 
er. It is hoped that The Impor- 
tance Of Being Earnest is an 
equally charming production, and 
a fine, stylish addition to the 
current UMass season. 


Rooms 110-112 G in Bartlett 
Hall serve a dual purpose. They 
form a speech therapy clinic, 
serving the public of four coun- 
ties and a laboratory for students 
of speech and hearing therapy, 
pathology and audiology. 

The rooms — a tiny, oblong 
waiting room, a main office with 
a suite of therapy and faculty of- 
fices to the right of it, and an 
observation and audiological test- 
ing room — provide "services 
based on the individual case study 
method" according to the head 
clinician, Dr. Inez Hegarty.

Students Discover Kissin 'n Chlorine 

From the University of Miami comes news 
which may revolutionize the dating habits in 
America, says the Daily Reveille, Louisiana State 

Dental researchers there have discovered that 
tooth decay is a highly contagious disease rather 
than a hereditary defect. 

At first, this may seem insignificant. How- 
ever, upon closer examination, who would know- 
ingly destroy his ivory smile or earn himself a 
premature set of false teeth simply because he 
had been kissing the wrong girl ? 

Dr. Doran D. Zinner, one of the researchers, 
confirmed that tooth decay was caused by certain 
types of mouth bacteria. The dental-microbiolo- 
gist asserts that these bacteria are transmitted 
by direct contact, using case histories of rats, 
hamsters and humans to prove it. 

A person will now need to check a prospective 
date's dental history as well as other vital sta- 
tistics. The question arises of how this may be 
done without arousing suspicion. 

Zinner announced that the best tooth decay 
protection comes from the use of flourides. Here 
is a positive area for discrimination. Once a per- 
son knows where his date is from, he need 
merely check his pocket guide of flouridated 
water supplies in the United States. If the local 
water supply is flouridated, then he can be sure 
by subtly plying her with water. 

Another method which might prove helpful 
calls for a bit of sleuthing. By staking out in the 
drugstore, one could take note of what kind of 
toothpaste she buys. 

With this social problem exposed, one can 
with proper precaution be sure before saying 
"Pucker up." 

ordinator of the student patient 
program, spends half his teach- 
ing time training three graduate 
students to oversee the 25 stu- 
dents who come to the clinic 
daily for instruction. The in- 
struction and clinical supervision 
is on the graduate and under- 
graduate levels. 

The clinic works in conjunction 
with the Clarke School for the 
Deaf in Northampton, and is 
certified both by the American 
Speech and Hearing Association 
and the State Educational Board. 
It also receives trainee grants 
from the Vocational Rehabilita- 
tion Association and is partially 
subsidized by the Federal Edu 
cational Board. The clinic utilizes 
hospitals as diverse as Belcher- 
town State and Massachusetts 
General for research and further 
student training. It practices an 
open policy concerning its pa- 
tients . . . any resident of the 
state within a 50 mile radius, re- 
gardless of age, may receive the 
clinic's services free of charge. 
Dr. Hegarty estimated that the 
oldest patient is in his eighties 
and the youngest, only a few 
weeks old. 

The patients who come to the 
clinic represent a variety of 
afflictions, including delayed 
speech, inability to read, stutter- 
ing, cleft palate, cerebral palsy, 
mental retardation and even the 
rare cancer of the larynx. The 
clinic, however, reserves its ser- 
vices only for therapy, and co-

seeking a Student Senate seat. 

Even as Ritchie took his 
seat, the summer government

Joe Doucette reported as chair- 
man of the Social Affairs Com-

The University of Massachusetts Press has been unanimously 
elected tu membership in the American Association of University 
Presses, a select group of 67 of the nation's top university pub-

The UMass Press, founded in the fall of 1964, met the strict 
AAUP requirements for membership this season and was elected 
at the recent annual meeting of the organization at Rutgers Uni- 
versity, New Brunswick, N. J. 

The non-profit AAUP's services to member presses include 
legislative representation, book exhibits at meetings of scholarly 
societies, market analyses and a listing of books in the well known 
"Scholarly Books in America." 

Established to provide a publishing outlet for quality manu- 
scripts on creative and scholarly subjects, the UMass Press began 
publication with "The Talkative President: the Off-the-Record Press 
Conference of Calvin Coolidge," by Dr. Howard Quint, head of the 
UMass history department and Dr. Robert H. Ferrell of Indiana 

Under director Leone A. Barron, the press in nearly two years 
has produced 20 publications with subject matter ranging from 
sociology to poetry. Its most recent publication was "Dialectics

Spontaneous Creation to Occur Here 

4& JkrV^^/% 

An exhibition of contemporary art, SPON- 
TANEOUS CREATION, The Unintended in Art. 
circulated throughout the United States by The 
American Federation of Arts will open at the 
University of Massachusetts, Student Union on 
Monday, July 25 from 7-9 p.m. and continue 
through August 11. 

In this century, a phenomenon has taken place 
in the Western hemisphere; the element of spon- 
taneity has entered into art to an extent un- 
known before. And it is a freedom and freshness 
on the part of both the artist and the viewer. 

In the Far East, particularly in Japan, there 
has always been a tradition of the accidental in 
art; art controlled only by the taste of the cre- 
ator. The momentary vision . . . expressed in a 

swift calligraphic stroke, a wash of pastel hue. 
a splash of color. 

Perhaps more than anything else, this tradition 
has led to a universality in art, unhampered by 
figurative restrictions or symbolic references and 
has broadened the scope of man's understanding 
of the unconscious. 

In this exhibition are brought together ex- 
amples of painting and sculpture by contempor- 
ary artists whose works, though stylistically di- 
verse, are both intuitive and extemporaneous and 
which, at one point in their genesis— from execu- 
tion to individual perception of the completed 
work are expressive of an act of spontaneous 

electronically produced in vari- 
ous frequencies of voice or mu- 
sic. A large speaker has been in- 
stalled on each side of the pa- 
tient's chair and the therapist 
can pipe music into both of 
them. The patient is asked to 
turn in the direction the sound 
is coming from. The therapist 
can observe his reaction through 

the one-way mirror between the 
two sections. 

For adult malingerers, the 
term which Dr. Hegarty uses for 
those trying to "beat the racket." 
techniques known as the galvanic 
skin response and white noise 
are used. The former tests the 
patient's sensory perception 
threshold, and the latter is a dis- 

harmonious sound that is used as 
a masking device for the purer 
tones. If the patient can't dis- 
tinguish the underlying tone, the 
tester concludes he is in need of

Editor Wants "Absolute Freedom 
For Collegiate Press and Staff 



Japanese Institute Dines, 
Entertains Roommates 

Summer Reporter 

A dinner was held on Wed- 
nesday by the Japanese Insti- 
tute for students in the Insti- 
tute and their American room- 
mates. The event took place in 
Stockbridge House, a small 
building just west of the South 
Dining Commons. 

For over a week the Japan- 
ese students had been learning 
American customs from their 
roommates. At the dinner the 

tables were turned as Ameri- 
cans tried their hand at eating 
sukiaki with chop sticks. Also 
served was rice and green tea. 

Americans who asked for 
sugar for their tea were looked 
on in pretended horror. Green 
tea is never drunk with sugar. 

After several fuses blew out 
due to the overload on the 
wires in the small building, the 
lights were turned off and the 
meal was completed with the 
light of the setting sun stream- 
ing in the windows.

have absolute freedom. The

Grad School Dean Announces 
First Graduate Nursing Program 

Oft-acclaimed as the world's most accomplished flamenco gui- 
tarist, Spanish Gypsy Sabicas will be performing Wednesday 
night. July 27, at 8:00 in Bowker Auditorium. 

The^irs t grad ua te progr a m 
nursing at the University of 
Massachusetts will begin this 
September, it was announced to- 
day by UMass Graduate School 
Dean Edward C. Moore. 

The four-semester program 
leading to a master's degree in 
nursing administration is de- 
signed to prepare experienced 
graduate nurses for positions as, 
directors of hospital nursing 
services, according to Miss Mary 
A. Maher, dean of the School of 

The curriculum includes four 
broad areas, according to Miss 
Maher: advanced nursing, ad- 
ministration, human behavior 
and research. 

• Foundation courses in the 
first year will stress identifica- 
tion and analysis of nursing 
problems and application of re- 
search to their solution, inter- 
personal relations and communi- 
cations, and organization and 
supervision of staff.

All applicants must meet ad- 
mission requirements of the Uni- 
versity Graduate School. In ad- 
dition, each applicant must hold 
a baccalaureate degree from a 
school accredited by the National 
League for Nursing with a pro- 
gram comparable to that of the 
undergraduate School of Nurs- 
ing at UMass; show evidence of 
academic ability sufficient to 
cferry graduate work by satis- 
factorily completing the Gradu- 
ate Record Examination; hold 
U.S. registration as a profession- 

having practiced as a successful 
professional nurse. 

According to Miss Maher, the 
program is being initiated be- 
cause the UMass nursing facility 
believes that "the quality of 
nursing care in any hospital is 
indelibly influenced by the phil- 
osophy and values of the direct- 
or of nursing." 

She stated: "In the complex 
social system of the modern hos- 
pital, the task of coordinating 
and directing the activities of 
the many categories of nursing 
personnel demands administra- 
tive skills of the highest order. 
As the hospital moves into its 
emerging role as a community 
health center, the director of 
nursing must widen her sphere 
to include relationships with 
many outside agencies."

information may write to: Miss 
Ida MacDonald, UMass School 
of Nursing, Western Massachu- 
setts Public Health Center,

Sabicas, the king of the Spa- 
nish guitar, is a prime example 
of a musical phenomenon — a 
natural artist, a master of his 
instrument, a man who became 
the world's foremost flamenco 

This is not the classic story of 
the aspiring artist who struggles 
for the money to pay for a mu- 
sical education. Sabicas' only 
teachers are an ear with per- 
fect pitch, an amazingly reten- 
tive mind, an innate rhythmic 
sense, the age-old traditions of 
his people, and a God given tal- 
ent. For Sabicas is a Spanish 
Gypsy and to the Gypsy the spi- 
rit of music comes as naturally 
as eating, breathing — life, or 

As a young child in his native 
Andalusia, Sabicas grew up a- 

mong the music, dance, and col- 
orful ways of his people, the Gi- 
tanos, as they are called in 
Spain. When Sabicas was five 
years old, he received his only 
lesson from an uncle who knew 
only two guitar cords. The boy 
played these two cords and soon 
began to learn more on his own. 

An artist was in the making. 

Three years later his mother, 
deciding the boy should have a 
more formal education, brought 
him before the best teacher in 
Pamplona who asked him to play. 
When the young Sabicas per- 
formed a fantastic run of notes 
on the guitar, the teacher ac- 
cused them of trying to make 
fun of him and ran mother and 
prodigy from the house. This 
was the extent of his formal 

At the age of nine, Sabicas 
made his debut with the com- 
pany of La Chelita at the El 
Dorado Theatre in Madrid. He 
later won first prize in a na- 
tionwide guitar competition and 
his professional career was 

It was probably most fortu- 
nate for the world that this one 
artist never fell victim to aca- 
demic routine. Had Sabicas en- 
tered a conservatory, he would 
most likely have graduated as 
just another good guitar player 
among the many hundreds in 
Spain. As a self-taught musician, 
Sabicas was able to retain that 
natural spark of the Gypsy, the 
fire and the exotic blending of 

beauty and savagery that is 

true flamenco.

noted experts on subjects indi- 
genous to the Conn. Valley and 
surrounding areas. The topics 
ranged from "Massachusetts 
Silver" to "Preservation of 

Mrs. Juliette Tomlinson, Di- 
rector of the Connecticut Val- 
ley Historical Museum, com- 
mented on the institute. 

"I would say that the insti- 
tute was a small success. Any- 
thing has to have a small start, 
and there is a definite need for 
this sort of thing in the valley." 

Mrs. Tomlinson also expressed 
her hopes that as the years pro- 
gressed the institute would be- 
come better known and attend- 

Living ninety miles from cam- 
pus, I find it difficult to return 
by 11:00 on Sunday if I go 
home for the weekend. Leaving 
home early to be back at school, 
I run into the weekend traffic. 
I think that a 12:00 curfew 
would alleviate this problem 
for many out-of-town students. 


To the Collegian: 

I think the curfew for Sunday 
night should be extended. The 
main reason for thinking this 
is because there is nothing to 
do unless we go out. Most stu- 

dents do their homework dur- 
ing the day and a Sunday night 
extension will make little, if 
any, difference as far as study- 
ing goes. 

I believe that the curfew on 
Sunday evenings should be ex- 
tended to 12:00. Many students 
go home or to the Cape on 
weekends. It would be more 
convenient if this curfew was 
extended. Since the curfew is 
to be lifted in the fall entirely, 
I should think that it would not 
be unfair to extend our Sunday 
night curfew. 


Although I am a commuter, 
I feel that Sunday night cur- 
few should be extended to 
12:00. I have many friends in 
the dorms and occasionally we 
go to Boston on the weekends. 
On Sundays we have to rush 
back, making things quite in-

We think that the Sunday 
night curfew should be extend- 
ed to 12:00. The students who 
go home over the weekend 
could use the extra hour to re- 

turn in. Also, many students 
may have dates and would like 
to come in later. The last day 
of the wekend is always busy 
and many events take place that 
day. With the extension of the 
curfew, the students will be 
able to schedule their plans bet-

SSEC Gets Library Hours; 
Endorses Monte Carlo Night 

Marathon Meeting Sees Constitution 

: auicus, famed Spanish Gypsy guitarist, as he performed before 
a spellbound crowd in Bowker Wednesday night. Thrnks to a 
last minute effort by his interpreter, Peter Schlonk, the concert 
came off without a hitch. Previously there was some doubt a- 
bout the non-English speaking gypsy's ability to let people know 
what he was playing. 


Summer Reporter 
In a marathon four-hour 
Summer Student Executive 
Council meeting, a constitution 
received approval, a promise of 
library hours extension was re- 
ported, and a Monte Carlo 
night was endorsed. 

Near the outset of the 
unique Council session William 
C. Venman, having accepted an 
invitation, offered some direct 
advice and a sampling of his 
Summer Session Director's phi-

First Session Gorman Picnic 
Brings Calls of Poor Planning 

Summer Reporter 

The Gorman House picnic, 
held last Friday, July 22, con- 
tinues to be surrounded by a 
ring of controversy. Scheduled 
from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the 
Belchertown Town House on 
the afternoon following final 
exams, it originally came un- 
der criticism because many 
Gorman residents would be 
leaving early for interscssion. 

A spot check at Gorman last 
Tuesday revealed that many 
residents were irritated about 
the timing of the picnic. Words 
used to describe it ranged from 
"stupid" to "absurd." 

According to Barry Epstein 
of Gorman, a regular student 
at UM Boston, "Between 4:00 
and 6:30 there were roughly 
ten people there. No one asked 
to see the tickets." He made it 
clear that he meant ten people 
in total. 

However, according to John 
Linquist, counselor at Gorman, 
roughly forty-five attended the 
picnic. Fran Vanbrodski, head 
counselor at Gorman, who also 
stated that he was at the pic- 
nic, agreed to the number for- 

Epstein also stated that three 
housemothers were there. Mrs. 
French, housemother at Gor- 
man last week, said that the 
other housemothers were Mrs. 
Glass and Mrs. Williams. 

The R.S.O. has not yet re- 
ceived the bill from the Town 
House, so it could not be de- 
termined exactly what the pic- 

nic cost. Vanbrodski estimated 
that the cost would be $38.90. 
The money will come out of 
that part of the student activ- 
ities fee which was set aside 
for use by the dorms. 

There was also disagreement 
as to who proposed the idea of 
having the picnic last Friday 
afternoon. According to Paul 
Schlosberg, President of the 
Summer Council and represent- 
ative from the third floor of 
Gorman, it was planned at a 

meeting at which he, Michael 
Ward, Barry Knight and Dave 
Fix, among others were pres- 

Ward said that this group 
constituted the social commit- 
tee of which he was chairman. 
He said that the Housemother 
at Gorman had appointed h'rr. 
chairman. He added that he 
proposed the idea of last Fri- 
day's picnic to the Committee 
after some men on his floor

VISTA, the volunteer corps 
of the Office of Economic Op-

projects that request aid in 
poverty pockets within the 
United Slates and its territor-

although they may extend

ed, ways in which the twelve 
weeks need not be cut off. 

When asked about summer 
student government, Venman 
reported that he had replied 
"why not?" "The only group 
that has not been represented 
[in the summer] to any great 
extent in academic affairs has 
been students," he continued 
while noting significant stu- 
dent involvement the past two 
semesters in academic matters. 

Acknowledging that he didn't 
think any plan had not been 
tried, he discussed the length 
of courses, a topic germane to 
summer session academic prob- 
lems, drawing response in 

graduate students, a large 
number of whom come to U- 
Mass only for the summer, are 
interested in student govern- 
ment, Venman advised the 
Council to find out what they 
think on issues. 

"You're facing a whole new 
area of challenge," the summer 
session director told the stu- 
dents. Discussing the "legiti- 
mate issue" of the summer ac- 
tivities fee, which the adminis- 
tration collects and distributes, 
Venman wondered out loud 
how a summer government 
could approve budgets in 
twelve weeks inasmuch as bud- 
gets occupy Senate attention 
from September to May. (The 
Finance Committee of the 
SSEC was instituted to consid- 
er the question, see below, 
among others.) 

Referring to his administra- 
tive interest in summer school. 
Venman asserted that "The use

also gave their attention to the 
problem of delay in receiving 
final marks. In explanation, 
Venman noted that the admin- 
istrative steff has to handle 
both registration for the first 
session and getting out spring 
grades at the same time. 

A ratio of two undergradu- 
ates to each graduatp student 
sets off summer student com- 
position from the four and a 
half undergraduate to each 
grad ratio of the academic 
year, Venman informed the 
Council. Whether or not these

make a slavish effort to model 
yourselves on the academic 
year." He predicted that this 
summer's experiment ("You 
people . . . are a pioneering 
group.") would serve as a 
guide to other schools.

ed that requests not demands 
be made to faculty, Dave O'-

back to work. He reminded the

was made. 

Another subcommittee, on li-

through Thursday and Sunday. 
A promise of immediate atten-

Oswald Tippo in the July 26

A Monte Carlo Night, which 
had been studied by the Social

effect, a pledge to work on

Senate document, a Summer

tion Constitution, with amend- 
ments added, passed close to 
11 pan. 

Much of the debate in which 
chairman Frank Verock de- 
fended some of his committee's 
work involved Joe Ross, Mar- 
shall Nadan, and Skip Davis. 
By far most controversial were 
the articles dealing with men's 
and women's judiciaries as the 
Council's initial approval of 
the 1966 bodies forebode. 

"More detailed procedures," 
said Senate veteran Ross, 
'^should be left to the by-laws."^ 
But Ross continued some "min- 
or" points should be included 
in the constitution just as is 
true of the brief United States 

Previous to an unanimous 
adoption of the constitution,

amendment be approved by a

wrong word and "summer stu-

the substitute. But various

has long been recognized the master achievement in the Held of 
modern comedy of manners. Wilde's play mocks everything in sight 
from conventional society to the popular melodramas of 1895. 

The basis of this play's peculiar charm lies in its extraordinary 
bold and consistent burlesque. Wilde provides us the pleasure, 
the relief, the self-indulgence of an imaginary world in which anti- 
social tendencies win their ultimate fulfillment. 

Instead of real people we enjoy the novelty of encountering the 
Platonic ideals of the dandy, the social dragon and the prude. 

The plot of this "farce comedy" has all the basic ingredients, 
coincidence and accident, to set the characters upon their course; 
intrigue and mistaken identity to heighten their simple problems 
into complex dilemmas.

Chinese Govt. Writer Looks at Viet Scene - &* * »*■ 

Ed. note: These lines below 
were received at the Collegian 
office a few days ago postmark- 
ed July 18, Peking, China. We 
just thought that you would be 
interested in reading another's 
viewpoint . . . who knows? May- 
be it's even true. 


by Tal Feng 
(a Chinese correspondent who 

toured the Vietnam battlefields 

The modern weaponry that the 
United States possesses cannot 
decide the outcome of the war in 
South Vietnam. This is the im- 

pression we got in a tour of the 
outskirts of Saigon where Viet- 
namese freedom fighters are 
holding at bay the world's migh- 
tiest imperialist army and its 
puppet forces. 

As elsewhere in South Viet- 
nam, the war here is without a 
front and a rear. Fighting goes 
on everywhere as armed villag- 
ers keep killing large numbers 
of the U.S. and puppet troops 
and extending the liberated zones 
to the very gates of Saigon. In 
a people's war such as this, there 
is no massive "Maginot Line" for 
bombs and shells to blast. Guer- 
illas and villagers, equipped with 

rifles and machineguns captured 
in battle, fight back from vast 
networks of trenches and tun- 
nels that stretch from village to 
village and through rubber plan- 
tations and paddy fields. 

On a highway to the north- 
east of Saigon, we saw guerillas 
ambushing U. S. military con- 
voys and capturing American 
troops alive. On the Saigon River 
to the south of the city, guer- 
illas fired at enemy shipping. 
We saw the wreckage of des- 
troyed vessels drifting down the 

In the villages northwest of 
Saigon, we found that almost ev- 

ery tree was pierced by bomb or 
shell shrapnel. No fewer than 
200 skirmishes were fought in 
and around these villages in the 
first 12 days of January 1966. We 
were told that upwards of 1,000 
U.S. troops were killed in these 

The U.S. Air Force has wan- 
tonly bombed the villages outside 
the city. During a single opera- 
tion, U.S. bombers dropped 3,000 
tons of bombs on one small vil- 
lage which covered an area of 
less than one square kilometre. 

During our visit to some of 
the villages, we were amazed at 
the calm with which people car- 
ry on their work. At one place 
we saw people filling in bomb 
craters and erecting thatched 
cottages on the ruins of bombed 
out villages. At another, we met 
women picking flowers near a 
wood. The y did n ot even lift

Every bit of farmland was be- 
ing cultivated. We heard the hum 
of lessons from the village 
school. The youngsters have be- 
come very battle-wise. Children 
around ten can identify any type 
of U.S. aircraft that flies over 
their villages. Some can even tell 
you where a shell may land as 
soon as they hear the roar of a 
distant gun. A people fighting

Just a little bit of explanation 
here for the special one page 
Collegian broadside on Tuesday. 
No, we're not running out of pa- 
per, people or pizzaz. Originally 
we had planned on not having a 
paper what with the three day 
weekend and then a hectic re- 
gistration day on Tuesday. 

But then we stopped and 
thought how comforting a Col- 
legian would be for those who 
had just been through the rigors 
of a post-session session and then 
a registration day playing Pony 
Express on the basketball courts 
of Boyden. 

So we put out a little extra 
something for all you out there 
in the hopes you might write a 
letter on the back of it and mail 
the whole thing home like they 

used to do in the old days

fourth floor of Gorman. 

Ed Parks, residence counse- 
lor at Gorman who said that he 
was at the meeting at which 
the picnic was planned, stated 
that the idea and the time were 
suggested by John Linquist, 
another counselor. Parks added 
that Linquist presented the 
idea to the group and there 
seemed to be general approval. 

Stuart Ferency of Gorman 
commented, "I want to com- 
mend the group that planned 
last Friday's picnic. I always 
look forward to staying on 
campus after the rigors of fi- 
nals. Three cheers for good 

planning." Epstein said, "I 
think that the picnic should 
have been planned at least a 
week earlier so that the fresh- 
men should have been able to 

According to Parks and

tive from second floor of Gor- 
man, the impression was given 
at the meeting that if the mon- 
ey wasn't spent before the end 
of the first session it would be 

However, the R.S.O. office 
revealed Tuesday that this was 
not the case. According to Mr. 
Scanlon, Business Manager of 
the R.S.O. Office, each dorm 
was alloted $200 for both sum- 
mer sessions, with the stipula- 
tion that not more than $100 
be spent the first session. "If 

less than $100 is spent the first 
session" he said, 'the rest car- 
ries over." Parks, Fix and a 
few others who had been at the 
picnic planning meeting regret- 
ted that this had not been

planning was poor. 

Mr. Gerwitz of the RJS.O. of- 
fice said that he hoped that the 
very loose financial relation- 
ship that now exists between 
his office and the dorms would 
be tightened. He indicated that 
the Summer Council might 
take action to this effect. As it 
existed until now anyone from 
a dorm could sign out money 
for his dorm. The one excep- 
tion has been Field, which elec- 
ted a Treasurer, who is the on- 
ly one registered to sign out 
money for her dorm. The oth- 
er dorms have no treasurers.

Importance of Being Earnest- 
er+atnlv^Noi-Done^y^ Amateurs

his second place ribbon. 

There are certain plays 
which are bound to please this 
reviewer, no matter who does 
them. Oscar Wilde's The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest is 
one of them. It would quite 
probably be enjoyable, even if 
it were performed by the worst 
amateurs. Its current produc- 
tion, by the University Reper- 
tory Company, is certainly not 
being done by rank amateurs. 
Vincent Brann's direction has 
generally increased the quality 
of the script, and those very 
few places where his work 
falls down ar e too few and too 
insignificant to mention. Mr. 
Brann, of course, has the im- 
mense advantage of working 
with an extremely competent 
group of actors and actresses. 
* Undoubtably the finest piece 
of acting in the play was done 
by Stephanie Braxton in the 
role of Gwendolyn Fairfax. 
The part is a very difficult one 

and Miss Braxton handles the 
exagerated mannerisms involv- 
ed in playing it with an amaz- 
ing facility. 

Some of her most satisfying 
moments come in scenes with 
Cecily Cardew, played very 
well by Susan Leich. These 
two actresses play remarkably 

is Peter Steltzer as the almost 
totally detestable Algernon 
Moncrieff. Mr. Steltzer's per- 
formance has like Mr. Spar's 
its few uncomfortable mo- 
ments, a gesture that doesn't 
ring true, an awkward line 
reading, but it too is generally 
of the first order. 

Cecily (Susan Leich) looks on as Miss Prism (Alexis Greene) 
registers horror at Canon Chasuble's ideas. Tom Turgeon 
played Canon Chasuble. 

Faculty Member's 7-Time Winner 
Edged Out at Morgan Competition 

After having claimed first 
prize in the Justin Morgan Per- 
formance for the past seven 
out of ten years, Richard Nel- 
son's U.S. Panez lost its bid to 
capture yet another top prize 
at the 24th Annual National 
Morgan Horse Show which o- 
pened last Thursday at North- 
ampton Fair Grounds. 

The faculty member-owned 
Morgan, ridden by owner Nel- 
son's son Wayne, will have to 
be content with a second place 
ribbon for 1966. 

Previously, Panez placed sec- 

ond only to UMass horses. 
This year marked the first 
time that the UMass— Panez 
dominance of the performance 
was upset by a non-affiliated 
horse. In 1964, Bay State Elect. 
a UM Morgan, had taken first 
place from Panrz. Elect was 
ridden by UM coed Marie Sorli, 

class of '66. 

The only entry that the Uni- 
versity itself had in this year's 
show was Bay State Flintlock. 
In 1962 Flintlock captured the 
reserve grand champion award. 
This award is given to the sec- 

ond best stallion of the entire 
show. This year Flintlock, rid- 
den by Agnes Wyant, a UMass 
student, performed in Class 52, 
but did not place. 

Dave Bachmann, an alumnus 
of UMass, attributed the sparse 
number of University entries 
"to UMass red-tape." He added 
that another reason was that 
Nelson was injured last Spring 
so he was not able to train. Ac- 
cording to a friend of Nelson, 
he was cited by Morgan Maga- 
zine as the best Morgan train- 
er this side of the Mississippi. 

This breed of horse is named 
for Justin Morgan who, in the 
early 1800's, was given an un- 
impressive horse. After having 
moved to Vermont, Morgan 
soon found that his horse had 
developed into a combination 
work-horse and racer— the best 
in the state. 

Since that time, with all oth- 
er Morgans descended from 
Justin Morgan's original horse, 
the Morgan has come to occu- 
py a unique place in the heart 
of the American horseman.

Following up on the recent con- 
troversy regarding library hours for

Summer Theatre 

Repertory Has 
Features Names 

Starting August first, child- 
ren of the area will get equal 
time with their parents to en- 
joy the fine work being done 
by the University of Massa- 
chusetts Summer Repertory 

The company, now in Its 
fourth week of repertory, is 
presenting a chldren's play, 
2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 at 1:30 p.m. 

THE STRANGER is an ex- 
perimental play written sever- 
al years ago by Brian Way, the 
director of the London Child- 
ren's Theatre Company. The 
play is intended to encourage 
among children an interest in 
and appreciation of the living 
theatre. Intended for the 4-12 
age group, but undoubtedly 
suitable for those slightly over 
or under the limit, the play 
concerns the adventures of a 
young girl in keeping safe a 
key from a pair of evil people. 

Storybook characters well- 
known to children of all ages 
aid Sally In eluding such vil- 
lains as Captain Hook, the 
Witch from Hansel and Gret- 
el, the Snow Queen, Jack 
Frost, a wizard and a peddlar, 
and even a strange bird. A- 
mong the characters to help 
her are Plnnocchlo, Mary Pop- 
pins, Robin Hood, The Reluc- 
tant Dragon, Puck, the Ches- 

Lynn Martin as the disagree- 
able Lady Bracknell does not 
show the audience her usual 
level of excellence. She is not 
great in this part, only good. 
There are moments in her per 
formance which are a little 
awkward, but they do not de- 
tract much from the fine com- 
edy that Wilde wrote into the

Children's Play; 
Like Cap a Hook 

hire Cat and Doctor Doolittle — 
oh, yes, Toad of Toad Hall gets 
into the action too. 

An interesting aspect of the 
production (there are many) is 
the fact that all these parts 
are played by seven actors and 
actresses. AH members of the 
UMass. Rep. company, they are 
performing in this "Special 
Added Attraction" in addition 
to their regular assignments 
with the troupe. One exception 
is Rosemary Feit, a twelve-year 
old who portrays Sally, the 
girl to whom all these wonder 
ful things happen. 

The play is being directed by 
Ruth Feit, an Amherst resident 
highly experienced in creative 
Dramatics and children's thea- 
tre. Educated at London's Roy 
al Academy of Dramatic Arts, 
the Alma Mater of such stage 
luminaries as John Guilgud 
and Laurence Olivier, Mrs. Feit 
came to Amherst from Ann 
Arbor, Michigan, where she 
was teacher of Creative Dra- 
matics in the school system, 
and directed the Junior Thea- 
tre's production of PINNOC- 
CHIO, also written by the au- 
thor of THE STRANGER. 

Another Important fact 
about this production is that it 
will serve as a theatrical exper- 
iment as well as a first-class

the funds were allotted the

The medical school also has 
been given $200,000 for books 
in the capital outlay budget and 
$100,000 for consultants in the

Dean Hunsberger said: "I hope

Senate Subcommittee Considers Plan 
To Provide Extra $30M. for NDEA 

A new plan recently presented 
to the education subcommittee 
of the Senate may provide an 
additional $30 million for NDEA 
loans to the nation's colleges in 
the current fiscal year. 

Commissioner of Education 
Harold Howe II, in presenting 
the plan, said the extra money 
was needed because approved re- 
quests from colleges and univer- 
sities for loan funds now total 
$213.5 million, while the amount 
previously authorized by the 
Congress is only $190 million. 

He also said use of the state 
allotment formula for deciding 
how much loan money goes 
where would mean that only "53 
or 54 per cent of the requests" 
could be honored in some states. 

Under Howe's plan, colleges 
which so desired could obtain 
their loan funds in the form of a 
loan from the Commission of 
Education instead of a federal 
capital contribution. 

Institutions that asked for 
such loans would be relieved of 
their present obligation to pro- 
vide one-ninth matching funds, 
although they would still be 
liable for 10 per cent of any col- 
lection losses.

REVIEW . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

The remaining four charac- 
ters in the play are treated by 
Mr. Brann as fairly stock 
types. We are shown an ex- 
tremely stiff and proper man- 
servant, a slightly bored and 
possibly tipsy country butler, a 
shy, nervous clergyman, and a 
very prim governess. Ted Da- 
vis, Richard Mennen, Tom Tur- 
geon, and Alexis Greene play 
these four parts. The first 
three are well done, especially 
at moments Mr. Turgeon's 
cleric and Mr. Mennen's butler. 
The fourth is, unfortunately, 
not as well as the others. 

For any play-goer who en- 
joys the sheer brilliance of 
Wilde's dialogue, this produc- 
tion, in spite of its few imper- 
fections, should be a treat. 
Once again this company has 
transformed its cramped act- 
ing quarters into a highly us- 
able playing space, with, of 
course, the able assistance of 
its designer, Dale Amlund, and 
its technical director, Terry 
Wells. Like the two other plays 
being performed by the com- 
pany in repertory, Irma La 
Douce and Look Homeward, 
Angel, this play provides an 
evening of good theatre to any 

for the loans would be sold 
through the Federal National 
Mortgage Association to private 
investors in a sales participation 
pool. Proceeds from the sales 
would be used to make more 
funds available to colleges for 
student loans. 

Howe emphasized that the 
process "does not involve banks 
or financial institutions in any 
way in the student financial aid 

On Jan. 25, President Johnson 
had revealed a plan to shift the 
financing of NDEA loans from 
the federal government to a pri- 
vately financed plan guaranteed 
by the federal government. 

The President suggested that 
the new program would have 
banks making loans to students, 
with repayment of the principal 
guaranteed by the government. 
Interest on the loan, while the 
student was in school, would also 
have been paid by the govern- 
ment. In addition, the govern- 
ment would pay up to three per 
cent interest on the loan after 
the student graduated. 

After Johnson included this 
suggestion in his budget mes- 
sage, opposition rolled in from 
college and university adminis- 
trators and education associa- 
tions, as well as from the pri- 
vate sources that would be ex- 
pected to supply the money. 

The $2.95 billion higher educa- 
tion bill was passed by the House 
in May. The bill, which now 
stands without the provisions to 
switch to private financing of 

interdisciplinary courses, honors assistant pro f ess or of c h e mi stry; 

Dr. Lewis C. Mainzer, associate 
professor of government; Dr. 
Bernard Spivak, professor of 
English; Ronald A. Steele, assis- 
tant professor of music; Dr. 
David W. Yaukey, associate pro- 
fessor of sociology. 

Meeting with the committee 
as non-voting members and re- 
source persons are Associate 
Dean Robert W. Wagner, profes- 
sor of mathematics and Assis- 
tant Dean Leonta G. Horrigan, 
assistant professor of English; 
H. Duncan Rollason, associate 
professor of zoology; Harry 
Schumer, assistant professor of 
psychology; and Severt J. Sa- 
vereid, associate professor of 

An intensive four-day meeting 
of the committee has been ten- 
tatively set for the week prior 
to the start of the fall semes- 
ter in September. 

Prof. Cook has indicated that 
the committee will consult with 
interested faculty and students

NDEA loans and includes a re- 
quest for funds to sustain the 
old set-up, is now awaiting Sen- 
ate approval. It appears likely 
that the Senate will go along 
with this portion of the bill. 

Howe said that the new ar- 
rangement "would not alter in 
the slightest way the terms af- 
fecting student borrowing." 
Loan forgiveness, interest rates, 
and the like would remain as 
they are at the present, the com- 
missioner said. 

Institutions will be affected 
positively, he said, since they 
will be able to free their match- 
ing funds for NDEA purposes 
and direct them at their discre- 
tion to the host of financial 
needs affecting every institution 
of higher learning. 

ences and with selected faculty 
^rom other colleges and univer- 
sities across the country. A re- 
port to the college faculty is ex- 
pected no later than May 31 

The appointment of the com- 
mittee represents the culmina- 
tion of at least one year of in- 
formal and formal discussion 
within the college. In February 
the faculty voted roughly S to 1 
in favor of appointment of a 
committee to re-examine the 
present curriculum, which was 
adopted in the spring of 1958— 
about two student generations 
ago, Dean Hunsberger noted. 

Only about xme^thjrdr of~ thy 
present faculty took part in the 
deliberations of eight years ago. 
Moreover, high school curricula 
have undergone striking changes 
and improvements since 1958, 
and today's freshmen enter the 
university with considerably bet- 
ter preparation. 

According to Dean Hunsberg- 
er, "It is our hope that Prof. 
Cook's committee will propose a 
curriculum which reflects these 
changes and which revitalizes 
and catalyses the process of lib- 
eral education. The rich diver- 
sity and high professional quali- 
ty of our present faculty provide 
a potential for curricular inno- 
vation that is not available to a 
liberal arts college unattached to 
a large university. 

"I look forward with great 
eagerness to the report of Prof. 
Cook's committee. If this report 
is accepted by the faculty, I 
shall spare no effort in imple- 
menting its recommendations at 
the earliest possible date."

for teachers and land settlement 

The goal is for 160 Volunteers 
to begin training in mid-Septem- 
ber and mid-October. The dead- 
line for applications is August 15. 

In a crash recruiting program 
on major college campuses in

UMass Graduate 
Captains Ship off N. E. 

Two ships have commenced 
work in Buzzards Bay and sur- 
rounding Massachusetts wa- 
ters, searching for sunken 
wrecks and other potential un- 
derwater hazards. 

They are the USC&GSS 
GARD, 66-foot, 48-ton vessels 
which work together as a team 
in locating underwater obstruc- 
tions hazardous to navigation. 
They are operated by the Coast 
and Geodetic Survey, an agen- 
cy of the Environmental Sci- 
ence Services Administration 
(ESSA), U. S. Department of 

These vessels are command- 
ed by LCDR Charles H. Nixon, 
UM '59, of Hopedale, Mass. The 
normal complement for each ves- 
sel is 2 officers and seven crew. 

The ships completed investi- 
gations in Boston Harbor June 
28, and will spend the remain- 
der of the summer in Buzzards 
Bay. The last time the vess Is 
were in the area was in 1963, 
when investigations were made 
in Buzzards Bay and Rhode Is- 
land Sound. 

The ships are searching for 
nine sunken wrecks. They are 
the fishing vessel MARGIE L, 
which broke in half in 59 feet 
of water; the vessel SHER- 
WOOD, sunk in 1949 on Wilkes 
Ledge; a sunken wreck report- 
ed by the publication "Naval 
Losses of All Nations" in 1944; 
a 110-foot steel barge which 
was used as a bombing target 
after it grounded on Sow and 
Pigs Reef and is now sub- 
merged and breaking up; the 
barge ARCO NO. 7, sunk in 
1952; a wreck sunk in 1924; a 
fishing vessel sunk in 1948; a 
derrick sunk in 30 feet of wa- 
ter in 1958; and the destroyer 

ST. CLAIR, sunk in 1948. 

The approximate where- 
abouts of the hazards have 
been reported to the Coast and 
Geodetic Survey, but their ex- 
act locations and the depths of 
water over them are not 
known. The vessels will search 
for the obstructions with a 
"wire drag," a quarter-inch 
steel cable attached to surface 
buoys which allow the wire to 
be set at varying depths, until 
each hazard is located or else 
proven non-existent. 

The ships' personnel include 
SCUBA divers who help iden- 
tify underwater objects and as- 
sist ~tn~Tneasurmg the depth. 

When an obstruction has 
been found and its location and 
depth determined, the wire 
drag is towed over it in the op- 
posite direction with the wire 
raised to clear the measured 
depth. If, as occasionally hap- 
pens, the highest point was not 
found, the wire again strikes 
the obstruction, and the proce- 
dure is repeated until the depth 
over the highest point of the 
obstruction is determined. 

After a wreck has been

Towing Still a Problem; Exec. Lauded 

USC & GSS Hilgrde 

To the Editor 

It was Friday and I just 
completed my last class for the 
day. I hurriedly made for park- 
ing lot S ready to jump into 
my car and get home. But this 
was not to be. My car was 
gone from its spot. I stood 
where once had been my be- 
loved auto, completely puzzled 
by its disappearance. Luckily a 
friend had been present when 
the "law" had intervened. 

The car had been towed a- 
way. I inquired at the campus 
prison to the reasons for this 
unasked-for service. There I 
discovered I had been breaking 
the law. It seems that I was 
parked outside the official 
bounds of the "S" parking 
area. The portion opposite the 
new administration building 
now under construction. The 
gross breakage of law that I 
so brazenly had the audacity to 
perpetrate was parking my ve- 
hicle at the most three feet out-

side the "official lot area." For 
this dastardly crime my car 
was towed to the other side of 

The fee I was forced to pay 
without any hearing or explan- 
ation was $7 and I was not al- 
lowed to take the car without 
this remittance. There is also a 
ticket which will probably be 
another $3 or $5. 

I think "that perhaps there 
has formed an image in the 
minds of some people, honor- 
able people, that the rich, 
spoiled, professional student 
with the Healy convertible is 
circulating about the parking 
areas with ten dollar bills float- 
ing out of his gold mona- 
grammed bermudas. If I may 
be so vain as to think that 
some of these enforcers of the 
Constitution may read this let 
me humbly say that this image 
is a false one and that $7 is a 
lot of money to most students 
and a '55 Chevy is a long way 
from an Austin Healy. In fact

To the Editor: 

The Exec Council deserves 
some congratulations this 

Quietly and effectively, the 
Council worked behind the 
scenes and extended women's 
curfew on Sundays one hour 
until twelve midnight. 

This achievement is in all of 
its modesty a major one. The 
students have been, for the 
first time, represented in sum- 
mer school. Nice, isn't it. 

My thanks to the Council, es- 
pecially Dave O'Connor of the 
Services committee.

To Run for Board of Trustees

lisher is superseded only by his 
literary conquests having au- 
thored such books as Robert E. 
Lee and The Road of Honor, 
The Doomed Road of Empire 
and So Great A Good. 

The upcoming lecture is ex- 
pected to be unique in its ap- 
proach and exciting in delivery. 

Michael Stavy, a 22-year-odd 
student at the University of Il- 
linois' Chicago Circle campus, 
hopes to be the first student 
in Illinois history to be elected 
to the university's board of 

Stavy plans to run as an in- 
dependent candidate in the No- 
vember elections, but first he 
quickly points out, he has to 
get his name on the ballot. 

This means he must present 
a petition of 25,000 registered 
Illinois voters to the state 
board of elections before Aug. 
15. If this requirement is met 
successfully, he will be certi- 
fied to run as an independent 

The hi g job, accordin g to Sta- 

vy, is not amassing the 25,000 
names. It's seeing to it that at 
least 10,000 of them are evenly 
distributed over 50 of Illinois' 
102 counties— another state re- 
quirement. "Some of those 
counties have more ducks than 
people," he said. "But don't 
quote me on that. I don't want 
to lose those counties," he 
quickly added. 

Right now Stavy is looking 
for volunteers around the 
state who will help him collect 
signatures. Charles Schlesin- 
ger, an instructor at the Uni- 
versity of Illinois' Urbana cam- 
pus, is helping him collect 
names there and he has re- 
cruited volunteers on the cam- 
puses of Northern and South- 
ern Illinois Universities. "Just 
getting on the ballot would 
seem like a victory," he admits. 
Stavy said even if he doesn't 
win he hopes people will start 
thinking of a student trustee 
as an alternative to student 
pickets and demonstrations. 

"The alternative has not only 
the advantage of being socially 
acceptable," Stavy said, "but it 
would also effect a permanent 
link between the student body 
and the administration. The 
line of communication would 
be tightened and formalized. 
Students would be assured of 
having both a voice and an ear 
in decision-making." 

Stavy would also like to see 
some faculty members on the 
board, but, at present, this is 
illegal. The law provides that 
no one under contract to the 
university can be a trustee. 

Stavy thinks changing the 
administrative structure is the 
best answer to the problems 
cr e ated by -the modern multi 

versity in which students, fac- 
ulty, and administration have 
become increasingly isolated 
from one another. He is not in 
favor of putting decision-mak- 
ing in the hands of the faculty 
and students alone. Presently, 
all decisions at the University 
of Illinois— both policy and fi- 
nancial — are made by the trus- 

Board members, according to 
Stavy, are usually disting- 
uished alumni who are nomi- 
nated either by the Democratic 
or Republican parties. He 
thinks these people are the 
ones most likely to be out of 
touch with the university and 
view it as it was when they 
were a part of it. 

Stavy pointed out that the 
job is time consuming and de- 
manding, but unpaid. This, he 
thinks, may be one reason the 
board does not function as dy- 
namically as it might. 

Students and faculty, howev- 

er, have a vested interest in 
the board's plans, he said. 
These decisions affect their 
lives directly, and their repre- 
sentation on the board might 
provide a way to effect import- 
ant changes, Stavy said. 

Stavy's platform includes 
plans for a new official similar 
to the Swedish ombudsman. 
This official would hear all 
complaints from faculty and 
students regarding the func- 
tioning of the administration. 
It would be his responsibility 
to investigate them and report 
his findings to the board, to 
whom he would be responsible. 
His reports would be open for 
all to criticize. 
Another of Stavy's proposals 

is that the board hold open, 
rather than closed, meetings 
on all issues except the hiring 
of personnel and the buying of 
property. Students would then 
be aware of issues in time to 
voice opinions before a deci- 
sion is made. At present, he 
said, the board deliberates in 
private and announces its de- 
cision only after it has been 

Stavy said he would also like 
to see that a student's judicial 
rights are protected. He feels 
that a student should be given 
due process in all disciplinary 
cases and that he should be 
allowed to gather evidence and 
cross-examine witnesses. Cur- 
rently, the university has no 
set procedure. 

Stavy said he believes that 
the trustee's first obligation is 
to protect the financial position 
of the university and that his 
second is to protect the insti- 
tution's academic freedom. 

Circuit Judge Edward Leavy 
denied last week the appeal of 
a college newspaper editor for 
a new trial on charges of con- 
tempt of court. 

The case will probably go to 
the Oregon Supreme Court. 

Miss Annette Buchanan, 20, 
of Seattle, is managing editor 
of the Daily Emerald, the stu- 
dent newspaper at the Univer- 
sity of Oregon. She was con- 
victed on contempt June 28 and 
fined $300 by Judge Leavy for 
refusing to tell a grand jury 
the names of students she had 
interviewed for a story about 
the use of marijuana on cam- 

She refused twice to give the 
names to the grand jury, the 
second time after the judge 
had ordered her to talk. 

Miss Buchanan has until 
Aug. 17 to appeal the case to 
the state Supreme Court.

Summer Exe c to Submit Constitutio n to Students 

Las^Vegas-NightJjxJcs Promising 

Summer Reporter 

After some probably-unex- 
pected objection, the Wednes- 
day meeting of the Summer 
Student Executive Council set 
August 11 as the date for sub- 
mitting its proposed constitu- 
tion to the student body. 

According to the constitution, 
adopted unanimously by the 
Council July 27, before becom- 
ing effective it must be "sub- 
mitted to a referendum of the 
entire summer student body 
and approved by a majority of 
students voting." 

What Dave Bartholomew op- 
posed in the original motion by 
Joe Ross (WHICH, covering 
more than a single-spaced type- 
written page, APPEARED ON 
THE AGENDA) was the date 
of August 18. 

Bartholomew's Social Affairs 
Committee's LAS VEGAS 
NITE will be the following Sat- 
urday, and he asserted that the 
Council would be too busy with 
that project to run an election 
two days before it. 

"The point is we should have 
it now/' was the point of view 
of Dave O'Connor. "We need a 
constitution. We need a legiti- 
mate leg to stand on," contin- 
ued the commuter representa- 



With the information from 
the Secretary, Caryn Goldberg, 
that copies of the constitution 
could be available four days be- 
fore the 11th, that date receiv- 
ed approval. Procedure for the 
voting was described; it follows 
the manner used in elections to 
the summer government. 

An election held earlier this 
week by the Council, however, 
drew only four votes to fill the 
vacant Gorman House base- 
ment seat. Barry Knight, not 
returning for the second ses- 
sion, had resigned at the close 
of the first. 

President Paul Schlosberg 
informed the body that since 
no candidate received five 
(write-in) votes, the election 
outcome was null and void. Be- 
traying only slightly his dis- 
pleasure, Schlosberg declared 
that there would be no further 
attempt. Hank Hirschel of Gor- 
man was asked and agreed to 
include the basement in his 
first floor constituency. 

Skip Davis, a commuter, was 
thanked for working on the 
unsuccessful election. 

At the time of committee re- 
ports, chairman O'Connor gave 
another complete account of 
his Student Services group. 

UMass Prof Publishes, 
Is Being Reviewed 

A UMass history professor's 
book, published in 1965, was re- 
viewed in the July issue of the 
William and Mary Quarterly 
(A Magazine of Early Ameri- 
can History). 

Here are excerpts from the 
review of Fisher Ames: Feder- 
alist and Statesman, 1768-1808 
written by Winfred Bernhard. 
Dr. Bernhard teaches courses 
in American colonial history 
and the American revolution- 
ary era (1763-1801). 

"Indiscriminately praised or 
condemned for well over a cen- 
tury, Ames survival in a ra- 
ther one-dimensional image, as 
a Parrington's characterization 


In last Friday's Collegian, 
there appeared an article about 
a Morgan Horse Competition at 
the Northampton Fair Grounds. 

Due to a discrepancy in facts, 
Richard Nelson, trainer of sec- 
ond - place winner U.S. Panes, 
was identified as a University 
of Massachusetts faculty mem- 

Actually, Nelson is a Univer- 
sity employee who teaches no- 
thing more than a long-time 
prize winning Morgan. Al- 
though this itself is a master- 
ful achievement, Nelson gives 
no reading assignments, thus 
his status as non-professor. 

of the pessimistic 'oracle of the 
tie-wig school,' clinging to in- 
flexible prejudices and refus- 
ing to face the realities of 
changing times. 

Although Samuel Eliot Mori- 
son tried to humanize him, it 
remained for Mr. Bernhard to 
write the first adequate, full 
length life of Fisher Ames. 

Bernhard's biogranhy, which 
won the Institute of Early Am- 
"lican History and Culture's 
Manuscript Award in 1963, will 
he welcomed to the sheif o' re- 
cent studies of Federalism and 
Federalist leaders. 

If it contains few surprises, 
it amplifies the conventional 
view of Ames as a High Fed- 
eralist, reveals him in perspec- 
tive by touching upon his dif- 
ferences with other party stal- 
warts, and pays adequate at- 
tention to the Republicans. 
Bernhard concludes that Ames' 
'tenacity of purpose, so valu- 
able in the initual stages of 
governmental development, be- 
came a tragic flaw when it pre- 
vented pragmatic insight. He 
broueht to the Federalist party 
a vivid intelligence which help- 
ed to make it strong and help- 
ed to make it weak.' 

Bernhard paints a lively por- 
trait of a colorful, intense, and 
dogmatic personality, shaped 
by inherited traits, a New Eng- 
land and Harvard education, 
and le«?al training under the

(Newly-appointed to head a 
trio including Elaine Bell and 
Sprague Davis, to investigate 
the high cost of buying sum- 
mer meals at the commons on 
a cash basis, Councilor Ross 
reported on his meeting with 
the Dean of Students for the. 
"grievance" committee. 

Boss spoke to Dean William 
Field on Wednesday morning 
on the problem of the Univer- 
sity's maintenance department 
disturbing students. The issue 
came to light partially due to 
a complaint from the President 
of the Council. Mr. Schlosberg 
was awakened by a Gorman 

fire alarm test at the ungodly 
hour of 8 ajn. 

According to Ross, Field said 
that although he could send 
out a general memo requesting 
that the University staff "be 
considerate" of the students, a 
direc*. individual complaint by 
the student involved would 
have better results. 

The Dean promised his atten- 
tion to do something about a 
specific instance when an in- 
writing request comes to him. 
He asked that the activity and 
circumstances and, when possi- 
ble, the name of the person 
causing the disturbance or in- 

convenience be included in a 

In the academic affairs de- 
partment, O'Connor informed 
the Council that the drafting of 
a letter to the Provost was be- 
ing investigated. A request of 
a break in the class hour-and- 
twenty-minutes is the intended 
subject of the letter; the chair- 
man offered the view that, 
while the Council was a liaison 
between students and the ad- 
ministration, a request to fac- 
ulty comes "far better" from 
the administration than the

View of near-empty OOODELL. A survey taken around 8:35 p.m. Tuesday, August 2, found few 

more than 25 UMies at the libe. 

Five students were in the upstairs study area, 5th level; 14 in back of the reserve desk; one in 

the periodical room; and five near the circulation desk and reference areas. 

Other areas were not surveyed. Similar conditions were in evidence at the Free Swim at the 

swimming pool. 

The continuance of the extended hours of the library effective on Sunday, August 7, will hinge 

on student use. A Women's curfew extension until 11:30 Monday through Thursday also hangs 

on whether the libe is patronized and kept open.

Summer Arts to Sponsor 
New Marlboro Symphony 

Blues Project for Homecoming 

The orchestra at the New 
Marlboro Music Center in New 
Marlboro, Massachusetts, has 
been an integral part of Red 
Fox Music Camp since 1956. 
About fifty young musicians 
(ages 13 to 25) enjoy participa- 
tion in this musical experience 
each summer. 

The aim of the orchestra is 
to give Its student membership 
the opportunity to perform 
standard works from the great 
orchestral repertory and to pre- 
sent this music to the students 
at the Center who do not play 
orchestral instruments. More- 

over, talented young soloists at 
the New Marlboro Music Cen- 
ter benefit from the orchestra 
by being able to perform con- 
certos with an excellent musi- 
cal organization. 

Two members of the Music 
faculty at the University of 
Massachusetts are represented 
in this concert: Ronald Steele, 
who will conduct; and Robert 
Stern, whose composition, Elev- 
en for Eight will be performed. 

Eleven for Eight was origi- 
nally conceived a.s a non-pro- 
grammatic movement tor the 
Truda Kaschma:m Modern 

—Incandescent Folk-Rockers— 

Dance Ensemble in Hartford. 
It was initially scored fpr elev- 
en instruments which accom- 
panied eight dancers, hence the 
title, Eleven for Eight. 

The dance was first staged 
in West Hartford, Connecticut, 
under the auspices of the Hart- 
ford Conservatory of Music 
with the chamber ensemble 
conducted by the composer and 
the dance choreographed by 
Truda Kaschmann. The present 
orchestral version is derived 
from the original score with 
minor revisions to accommo- 
date the fuller instrumentation. 

The New Marlboro Sympho- 
ny will appear Sunday, Aug. 8 
at 8:00 p.m. at Bowker Audito- 

The Blues Project, an up and coining musical group, who will 
appear at the Homecoming: '63 festivities. See Story, same page.

Digressing for several mo- 
ments, asking the Council's 
pardon and cooperation at the 
same time, O'Connor stressed 
the importance of having con- 
stituents behind the represent- 

For the record, note was 
made of the Sunday curfew ex- 
tension (effective last Sunday) 
one hour until 12 midnight and 
the new pool hours, which are 

6 p.m. to 8 p.m. each evening 
except Sunday (when the pool 
is not open) and Tuesday 
which has hours from 5 p.m. to 

7 p.m. 

The now - accomplished cur- 
few extension for Sundays was 
called at one point in an earlier 
debate an "ultra-reasonable" re- 
quest by O'Connor. A meeting 
with Dean of Womep Helen 
Curtis on July 15 by Council 
President Schlosberg and Vice- 
President John Lannon was an 
early step in the endeavor. 

After a July 20 Council dis- 
cussion, which impressed some 
observers as a repeat perform- 
ance of the Senate on the ques- 
tion, a unanimous vote author- 
ized a letter to the Dean of Stu- 
dents, seeking his support.

Field, and earlier to Miss Cur-

All the august reps want is 
a little support. 

They care about how "legit- 
imate" their voice-for-you is. 
They want you to ratify their 
constitution. They didn't have 
to make that stipulation! 

Next week copies will be 
available on your bulletin 
boards. You might find some 
provisions needing touching 
up. I think there are some. 

But vote for it. I will. 

Where were you when the 
articles were being discussed? 
Not there, perhaps. Well then 
accept the constitution. Take 
five minutes and vote on Aug- 
ust 11. 

You can offer suggestions 
for revision later. That's how 
the U.S. Constitution's Bill of 
Rights got added. 

Now if you're real interest- 
ed, and maybe will show up at 
the event anyway, how about 
offering your talents for plan- 
ning the LAS VEGAS NITE? 

Well why not. Is it really 
"square" to go and vote for a 
constitution - for-a - body which 
has accomplished most of its 
"hours" platform? 

I remember, finally, an ac- 
tive minority of students last 
Spring. Thinking about the no- 
curfew Fall, I think it was 
worth it and not a bit square.

an unhappy housing develop- 

what's happening, and will be 
happening Friday night of 
Homecoming '66. When you 
talk about The BLUES PROJ- 
ECT, you're talking about the 
most versatile and talented 
group to hit the teen music 
scene in a long while. They are 
five music-loving guys who 
really lay down those sounds 
that audiences love to hear. 

New York Times music cri- 
tic, Robert Shelton called The 
BLUES PROJECT "the most 
incandescent group in folk-rock 
today." (But folk-rock is not 
the only place they're at). Add 
a bit of rock-and-roll, a touch 
of rhythm-and-blues, some soul, 
a dash of jazz^and yot" 

only a portion of the wide spec- 
trum on The BLUES PROJECT 
palette. The style is all their 
own, but they never run out of 
variations ! 

The name, The BLUES PRO- 
JECT, came from the title of 
an LP blues album on which 
Danny Kalb, the originator and 
some other members of the 
group played. 

The new name was perfect. 
They were something new to 
be built — a new undertaking — 
in other words, a project — The 

Danny thinks of himself as 
a fun J loving manic-depressive. 
He has his lighter side, too. 
When asked what he has 
learned through his career in 
show business, Danny Kalb

which eleven o'clock imposed 
on women returning from a 
weekend away. Much Council 
sentiment, however, was with 
Frank Verock's position that 
"curfews are an imposition" on 

O'Connor noted Field's coop- 
eration in securing the change. 

A goodly part of the Services 
Committee's report was a lec- 
ture and an explanation by the 
chairman on the new libe 
hours. Goodell Library will be 
open until 11 p.m. Sunday 
through Thursday starting Au- 
gust 7 for a two week experi- 
ment, observing all other exist- 
ing hours. 

The degree of usage, accord- 
ing to the Provost, will deter- 
mine the longevity of the pro- 
gram, O'Connor reported. 

People should not be driven 
to the library, Councilor O'Con- 
nor asserted, for keeping the 
administration happy to justify 
continuing the trial hours. Call- 
ing for honest use, he made the 
unavoidable conclusion that, 
given the Council vote to get 
the hours, "there's something 
at stake." 

"If the library isn't going to 
be used, we're guilty of waste. 
We don't want to falsify sup- 
port," said the hard - working 

In his turn, Social Affairs 
chairman Bartholomew told the 
representatives bluntly that 
Las Vegas Nite (re-christened 
from Monte Carlo Night) was 
not getting enough student par- 
ticipation in getting the event 

"I'm going to keep bugging 
you about this," he promised 
his fellow Councilors asking 
them to get volunteers. Meet- 

ings on various parts of the 
program were cited as lasting 
in most cases only a half-hour. 

The work of Barbara Scud- 
der in writing to 22 Las Vegas 
clubs for equipment was des- 
cribed as allowing the commit- 
tee to provide authentic mater- 
ial. At the same tune, an inven- 
tory of available equipment, 
held over from previous use, 
was described as fortunate. 

The Finance Committee, too, 
reported. Skip Davis said that 
his committee does not plan to 
prepare a formal budget (for 
next summer's student activi- 
ties). Neither time nor ability 
for them to do so was to be had 
said chairman Davis. Sugges- 
tions, which should receive due 
attention according to Davis, 
will be made to Summer Ses- 
sion Director William Venman 
and R.S.O.'s Gerald F. Scanlon 
on 1967 summer spending. 

In other business, the Fin- 
ance group reported that it was 
attempting to get only one per- 
son from each dorm registered 
as the official treasurer and 
the only person authorized to 
draw on dorm funds. That be- 
ing the case, Jackie Somma 
withdrew her motion tabled 
(not passed) last week which 
asked that the committee inves- 
tigate the use of dorm money. 

Other money matters includ- 
ed a reduction by $100 of this 
year's ($500) SSEC kitty for 
the use of the Social Affairs 
Committee in planning their 
main event. 

Next week the Council met- 
ing will be held at 8:30 Wed- 
nesday, August 10, to allow 
members to attend a 7 p. m. 
Faculty Tea given by Eugene 
Field House. 


Yes, that's right. 

The Dean's Team (you have to bat a 3.00 to 
make the team) has beaten the Intramural ter- 
rors Sgt. Fury and the Screaming Commandos 
(you have to be able to make a lethal fielders 
glove out of birchbark) by a score of 19-12. 

The Commandos, a la Steve Canyon, fell in 
line behind their femme fatale pitcher: they fell 
out of line behind the power hitting (a carryover 
from their nine-to-five existence) of the Dean's 

As of last report, the Screaming Commandos 
are undaunted by their upset and are spoiling 
(phew!) for another game with the fun-loving 
Machmer Marauders (the D.T.'s alias). 

However, it is rumored that the D.T.'s weren't

Parachuting-A Matter of Discipline 

UM Music Professor To 
~~ Be Guest Conductor^ 

Ronald A. Steele, University of 
Massachusetts Symphony direc- 
tor, will be guest conductor for 
a UMass Summer Arts Program 
concert Monday, Aug. 8, by the 
New Marlboro Music Center 
Symphony Orchestra, 

The concert, at 8 pjm. in Bow- 
ker Auditorium, will present an 
original work by another UMass 
some sixty musicians between 
the ages of 13 and 25. The or- 
chestra has been an integral part 
of the Red Fox Music Camp, 
New Marlboro, Mass., since 1956. 

Besides the Stern composition, 
the program will include the 
Roman Carnival Overture of. 
Berlioz and the Symphony No. 
4 in E Minor of Brahms. Tickets 
are on sale at the UMass Student 
Union Ticket Office. 

The following is Part I of a 
aeries of articles on some aspects 
of sport parachuting, especially 
those related to the collegiate 
scene and the UMass Sport Para- 
chute Club. Dom Gieras is club 
publicity officer and coordinator. 
L Sport Parachuting: What's in 
it for me? 


Excitement, exhilaration and 
just plain fun — that's what is in 
it for you. The sport of para- 
chuting has grown from its mea- 
ger beginnings in the mid-50's, 
to one of the fastest growing 
sports in the country. 

The Parachute Club of Amer^ 
ica, the national body of the 
sport, estimates that there are 
now some 30,000 sky divers (and 
sport parachutists) flying a- 
round the countryside, and that 
1.6 million jumps were made 
last year. The average age of 
the parachutists is 24, although 
some are as 'old as 70. 

As a reflection of the average 
age of parachutists, organized 
collegiate jumping has spread 
rapidly throughout the country. 

In the Northeast alone, such 
schools as Harvard, UConn, 
Middlebury, Norwich and West 
Point have organized clubs that 
compete regularly. Schools as 
far away as the University of 
Montana and the University of 
New Brunswich (Canada) have 
competed in events in the North- 
east area

Washington, July — Washing- 
ton Report, official weekly pub- 
lication of the Chamber of Com- 
merce of the United States, criti- 
cized the Federal Government 
for what it calls a double stand- 
ard of dealing with unions and 

A front-page article, head- 
lined "Does Government Double 
Standard Feed Union Power?," 
cites the Government's denunci- 
ation of molybdenum price in- 
creases (later rolled back) while 
failing to criticize the Machinist 
Union for striking against the 
recommendations of a Presiden- 
tial Board as "new examples of 
union irresponsibility and Gov- 
ernment bias." 

Washington Report goes to 
nearly 120,000 National Cham- 
ber members and subscribers 

Text of the article includes: 

How long, we wonder, wil 
thoughtful citizens tolerate Gov- 
ernment coddling of unions 
against the public interest and 
the efforts of employers to pro> 
vide good jobs at high wages and 
earn the profits which are nec- 
essary to maintain our prosperi- 
ty and high living standards? 

How long are we going to see 
cities immobilized by illegal 
transit strikes, schools shut 
down by illegal teacher strikes 
— and politicians bending over 
backwards to protect the unions 
from appropriate legal actions? 

Election of new officers was 
the main item on the agenda at 
the last Executive Board meeting 
of the Cooperative School Service 
Center. Looking forward to its 
third year of operation, the fifty- 
five member school systems from 
Massachuetts, Connecticut, Ver- 
mont, and New Hampshire, elect- 
ed a new slate of officers. Head- 
ing the organization as President 
for the next year will be Robert 
J. Jarvis, Superintendent of 
Schools in East Longmeadow, 

Stepping down as President is 
James Clark, Superintendent of 
Schools in Agawam, Massachu- 
setts. Mr. Clark successfully 
guided the Cooperative School 
Service Center in its first two 
years of operation. 

Mr. Jarvis was the former 
Vice President of the Study 
Council and has been Superin- 
tendent of Schools at East Long- 
meadow since 1953. Prior to this 
he was Superintendent of Schools 
in the Irving School Union for 
five years. His experience also 
includes a principalship in Sand- 
wich, Masachusetts and teach- 
ing positions in Dighton and 
Wareham, Massachusetts. 

Mr. Jarvis holds a B.S. and 
M.A. from Tufts University; he 
has done graduate work at Bos- 
ton University, Harvard Univer- 
sity, and the University of Mass. 

Superintendent Jarvis has also 
had the honor of being past Pres- 
ident of the Barnstable County 
Teachers' Association and of the 
Franklin County Superintend- 
ent' Association. He has been ac- 

tive in work with both the Boy 
and Girl Scouts. He is married 
and the father of three children. 

Elected Vice-President was 
Lynn M. Clark, Superintendent 
of Schools at Westfield, Massa- 
chusetts. Mr. Clark has served 
on the Executive Board of the 
Cooperative School Service Cen- 
ter for the past two years. 

Re-elected Recording Secre- 
tary was Ronald J. Fitzgerald, 
Superintendent of the Amherst 
School System. Mr. Fitzgerald 
also has been an Executive Board 
member for the last two years. 

The Service Center is present- 
ly preparing itself for another 
busy and productive year in ful- 
filling the educational needs of 
its member-school systems. Fur- 
ther research, dissemination of 
educaitonal information, circula- 
tion of publications, and survey 
studies are now under way for 
this coming academic year. 

fully fielded teams since the 
club's inception in the late '50's. 
Why this rapid growth? The 
primary reason is the develop- 
ment of equipment aimed at ma- 
king parachuting safe, comfort- 
able and fun. Such innovations 
as the sport sleeve that takes 
up a great deal of the opening 
shock, and special harnesses de- 
signed to provide comfort while 
you glide down to earth. 

One of the greatest catalysts 
to sport jumping was the devel- 
opment of the steerable canopy 
which enables the parachutist to 
steer his canopy, even in rela- 
tively high winds, to a pre-ar- 
ranged drop zone that is usually 
lined with soft sand. With new 
canopies and better modifica- 
tions, the parachutist is no long- 
er left to the mercy of the winds 
but is able to control both his 
descent and his direction. 

Of course, parachuting is just 
one aspect of the larger sport 
of sky diving. As the parachutist 
progresses he becomes less of a 
parachutist and more of a sky- 

Sky diving is where the fun 
really begins. This sport devel- 
ops discipline of body and mind. 

In the words of Prof. Samuel 
Beer of Harvard, a 55 year old 
sky diver, "Sky diving is a very 
civilized sport, the most civilized 
sport. The mark of civilization 
is the use of reason to control 
emotion. When you jump, you 
have to use your mind to over- 
come panic and fear and, when 
you're more proficient, careless- 
ness and laziness. It's a very 
private thing— something you do 
for its own sake. Once you get 
out of that plane, you feel safe 

Cummington Holds Baroque Fest 

Monday — Thursday 


Wednesday and Sunday 
7:00 p.m. — 8:30 p.m. 

The Cummington School of the 
Arts announces its fourth annual 
series of Baroque concerts, under 
the musical direction of Sonya 
Monosoff, to be held again in the 
old Village Church of Cumming- 
ton, Massachusetts. This has been 
a distinguu. led collaboration be- 
tween School and Village, attrac- 
ting a Labor Day weekend audi- 
ence from a distance as well as 
from the local region. 

The white spired church, hold- 
ing three hundred people, with 
its renovated tracker organ, 
makes an acoustically live and 
intimate setting for this music 
of the seventeenth and eight- 
eenth centuries, so humanly ex- 
pressive. Composers range from 
Monteverdi and Frescobaldi to 
Handel and Bach. The third pro- 
gram is all-Bach, another selec- 
tion from that ocean (Beetho- 
ven's word for him) ending with 
the moving Trio Sonata from the 
Musical Offering, a tradition of 
the Cummington concerts. 

The Ladies Society of the Vil- 

lage serve a hearty supper be- 
tween the afternoon and eve- 
ning performances and rooms are 
available in the vicinity for the 
people from a distance who plan 
to stay for the Bach program 
on Sunday afternoon. 

Information about programs 
and tickets can be had by a card

Vietnam Marines 
Want Some Letters 

L/CpL R. G. Walker 
H.Q. 4th. Bn. 11th. Mar. 
c/o F.P.O. San Francisco 
California 96602 July 31, 1966 
Dear Students, 

The men of my battalion are presently serving in Cha 
Lai, Vietnam, and many of us would like to correspond 
with all of you if it could be arranged somehow. 

We are an artillery battalion made up of 8", 109 mm., 
self-propelled guns, and our home base is Ywentymine- 
Palms, California. 

I can only give you a short rundown of our unit as 
some of the information we cannot give out, but I hope 
it gives you some kind of idea what we are like. 

If anyone would like to write to some Marines here 
they can direct all mail to me and I will try to forward 
it on to all the men who want to write someone back home. 

Thank yon, 
Rodney G. Walker 
L/CpL U.S3I.C. 

This letter from Rodney Walker was received today 
and the Collegian office was impressed by the initiative of 
Marine Walker and his compatriots in Vietnam. 

In any case, the Summer Collegian is prepared to pro- 
vide free stationery and postage for the first 100 people 
who desire to correspond with Marines in Vietnam. 

All you have to do is write (legibly) or type out your 
letter on scratch paper or whatever is handy, and then 
bring it in to the Collegian office to our secretary, Miss 
Kodis. In turn, she will type the letter on an aerogram and 
send it off for you. 

We think it is a wonderful opportunity to get to know 
someone who is trying his best to help and defend his 
country. Although there are probably many of you who 
do not go along with the U.S. involvement in Vietnam, the 
fact is that there are soldiers over there who are fighting 
and trying not to die — regardless of the whys and where- 
fores surrounding the war itself. It will be these men to 
whom you are writing.

UM Prof. Sees Involvement 
As Part of College Press 

The Collegian has definitely 
improved in the past few years, 
according to an English profes- 
sor at UMass, giving his views 
on student newspapers in gener- 

"I believe the main function 
of a college newspaper is to lead 
the student body it represents," 
said Joseph Langland, a member 
of the UMass English Depart- 

Langland, who came here sev- 
en years ago from the Universtiy 
of Wyoming, added that he be- 
lieved a preliminary principle of 
the college press is no censor- 

"Freedom of the press must 
be accompanied with the re- 
sponsibility of the student edi- 
tors. I do believe, however, in 
the idea of an adviser . . . every- 
one should have the benefit of 

Langland said that in a stu- 
dent body as large as UMass', 
the press, serving as a forum, 
would have to distinguish be- 
tween the "crackpot ideas" and 
"the beneficial or noble" ones. 

In this area of mature judg- 
ment, he approved of the advis- 
orial system practiced at U- 

"I can remember reading 
some very well-phrased passag- 
es, as well as some atrocious 
ones, in the same issue. In gen- 
eral, I've found the writing 
quality uneven in the Collegian," 
said Langland, the author of a 
college textbook, The Short 

He said also that he believes 
the students of today are more 
involved in the outside world 
than they were in his day and 
that the college press should re- 
late to the outside world. 

"I can't imagine a college 
newspaper separated from the 
outside world. If this were so, it 
would be nothing more than a 
local record filled with chit- 
chat. The editor has the right 
and duty to comment on the 
outside issues, but this should 
only be in editorial form, and 
should be labelled as such."

legian has the right to be a po-

Constitution Needs Student Vote 


SSEC - "Hardly Scratched the Surface" 


Two days from today, members of the Sum- 
mer Student Executive Council will conduct a 
referendum, asking student approval of its pro- 
posed constitution. 

Polls in the Union for commuters will be open 
from about 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the dorms, the 
time on Thursday, August 11, will be from about 
6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Besides the apocryphal "con- 
scientious" student, every stu- 
dent should, however reluc- 
tantly, participate in Thurs- 
day's referendum. 

Thinking on the matter, the 
student might see his duty as 
a student involved, or more cre- 

atively, he might see his poten- 
tial as a student encouraged, by 
this vote. 

This is what I hope will hap- 

For in my sometimes-humble 
opinion, I view this summer's 
government, and its future con- 

Off-Campus Residences- 
Potential of Student Digs 


You leave the main street of 
Northampton and enter a dark, 
dirty alley. You go past the 
warehouse and then come to a 
red brick church with a white 
steeple. Attached to this church 
is an old but well-kept brick 

You open the black wrought- 
iron gate and enter a postage- 
stamp size courtyard. You follow 
the slate slabs, open the door, 
then up three flights of dimly- 
lit stairs, clutching a wobbly 
bannister. You pass the second- 
hand dress shop, the beauty par- 
lor, and the art school and enter 
a warmly-heated room that un- 
til two years ago was a union 
hall. It is now the combined stu- 
dio and living quarters of a U- 
Mass art major. 

The art student is a slight, 
sot t spoken young man in his 
early twenties with gray-green 
eyes and a sleek mustache. He 
is eager to show you how he 
made a union hall into an apart- 
ment that is both functional and 

The large room, which mea- 
sures 30 x 40 feet, has two .par- 
titions, one jutting from the 
south wall almost to the other 
partition, which goes from the 
east wall into the middle of the 
room. One partition sections off 
a narrow alcove that he uses as 
a kitchen. 

On entering the apartment, 
you turn left into the kitchen 
area. First you see a small cup- 
board on top of which rests 
several orange juice bottles on 
top of which rests a book of 
Rembrandt paintings. Over this 
almost pop-art-like arangement 
hangs a large, framed print. 

Beside the cupboard are built- 
in shelves stacked with soap 
cans. Then there is a table with 
dishes piled high in a strainer 
sitting on it. An indented cubby- 
hole reveals a toilet and a sink 
full of dirty dishes. Against the 
south wall is an old refrigera- 
tor and a table holding several 

small cooking appliances. 

Along the partition wall runs 
a board on which are hung uten- 
sils, coats, and any stray cloth- 
ing. On a large, baroque marble 
table is a sculpture of a person's 
head and several dainty china 

As you leave the kitchen, you 
notice the large piece of paisley 
material tacked on the inside of 
the door and the blue blanket 
artistically draped on the back 
of the other partition. These are 
used as backdrops for photo-

tinuance, as oeing very much at 
stake on referendum endorse- 

My own doubts about this con- 
stitution lie in its assertion of 
being the student government of 
the summer sessions. Enforcing 
that claim are the votes received 
by the members in the various 
elections held. 

BASIS on which the Council 
may say that it is a legitimate 
representative body of a legiti- 
mately self-governing commun- 
ity. As Student Senator Lewis 
Gurwitx '68 told an early ses- 
sion of the SSEC, "The only 
thing you have that grants you 
any authority at all is that 
you're elected." 

But I have thought over my 
"objections" to the constitution 
and have come to the conclusion 
that it should be ratified largely 
on the basis of those objections! 

Given student body endorse- 
ment; the greater the turnout, 
the greater the approving ma- 
jority, the better; the Council, 
I believe, can easily get the ap- 
proval of the Student Senate or 
even of the Board of Trustees. 

The Council may then add a 
charter to its real achievements 
made in the meanwhile. 

Essentially, I cannot stray 
from defending student govern- 
ment on the argument of why 
students should get out and 
vote. I do see student govern- 
ment at stake, not the particu- 
lar provisions of the constitu- 
tion. (Those provisions can be 
modified provided the Council 
has sanction to make them at 

So I say for what it is worth 
that student government is nec- 
essary and useful. Further, stu- 
dent government has hardly 
scratched the surface of its po- 

For Thursday to see a lack of 
interest in the referendum would 
be an unintelligent waste.

Academic Interaction 
Attempted at Big Ten 

The Collegiate Press Service 

To hold down costs and at the same time provide better in- 
duction, colleges increasingly are pooling resources in joint ven- 
tures ranging from sharing libraries to allowing students actually 
to attend classes at another institution. 

The government and some foundations are encouraging the 
trend by favoring such ventures in grants and research contracts. 

A prime example of the trend is the Committee on Institutional 
Cooperation, based at Purdue University, of which the Big Ten 
Schools and the University of Chicago are a part. 
The CIC, perhaps the most gan was the largest recipient of 

cooperativ e, has as one of its 
chief aims the broadening of 
graduate study opportunities as 
cheaply as possible. One of the 
latest projects is a facility call- 
ed a biotron being built at the 
University of Wisconsin's Madi- 
son campus. It is a building in 
which temperature, humidity, 
and other con&'tions can be pre- 
cis el y con troll e d t o p e rm it-study- 

of the effects of climate on hu- 

The biotron will cost $6 mil- 
lion — a project must universi- 
ties would consider too ambi- 
tious. William Deminoff, the 
CIC asociate director, noted 
that the total cost would run 
to $66 million if each of the 
member schools had, in the 
course of their construcion of 
research facilities, needed a bi- 
otron. But the Wisconsin facil- 
ity will be used by all and the 
cost shared by all. 

Another CIC project involves 
more than 100 graduate stu- 
dents who make use of the 
"travelling scholars" program 
that enables them to go to an- 
other campus to get some of 
their instruction. This has be- 
come increasingly popular be- 
cause of the tendency among 
graduate students to pursue 
new fields of study. 

For instance, one student 
currently participating in the 
program is working on his doc- 
torate at Northwestern Univer- 
sity. He specialized in electrical 
engineering as an undergradu- 
ate but his doctoral work will 
deal with the mechanical prop- 
erties of physical fibers. 

To do some of this work he is 
spending a semester at the Uni- 
versity of Ilinois, which he feels 
has greater facilities for this 
type of research. 

From the fall of 1964 through 
the summer of 1965, 108 stu- 
dents participated in the pro- 
gram. Departments attracting 
the most travelling scholars 
gram is working on his doctor- 
ate at Northwestern University. 
He specialized in electrical engi- 
neering as an undergraduate but 
his doctoral work will deal with 
the mechanical properties of 
physical fibers. 

To do some of this work he is 
spending a semester at the Uni- 
versity of Illinois, which he feels 
has greater facilities for this 
type of research. 

The University of Illinois has 
made the widest use of the pro- 
gram, with 29 students being 
sent for study on other campuses 
In the 1964-65 period. Wisconsin 
sent 19 students to other cam- 
puses. The University of Mlchi-

Needs Its 
Books Back 

Friday, August 19, is the clos- 
ing day for the Science-Fiction 
Club Library. All boks must be 
returned and deposits collected 
by that day. 

It is rumored that unless the 
books are returned by the speci- 
fied date, the delinquent owners 
will disappear forever from the 
face of the earth: only to ap- 
pear sporadically as stamps on 
overdue notices. 

The library is located in room 
101 Clark Hall and is open on

9:00 and Friday afternoons from

The idea for the CIC took 
form in 1958 when the presi- 
dents of the eleven Midwestern 
universities decided to form a 
voluntary association and ap- 
pointed representatives from 

their schools to study the vari- 
ous plans for pooling resources. 

During the CIC's formative 
period, the concept of a "seed 
grant" was developed and given 
support with funds from the 
Carnegie Corporation. The plan 
calls for granting small sums of 
money to permit faculty mem- 
bers from various universities to 
meet and discuss projects. 

Letters to the Editor 


Mrs. Lois Wrey 

Did not fall on deaf ears 

Answer to Mr. Noel J. Gorman 
re: Vehicle Towing 
Dear Mr. Gorman, 

I am quite sympathetic with 
your recent predicament of hav- 
ing your car towed and the sub- 
sequent fine and expense in- 
volved. As a self sufficent vehicle 
operator trying to make a dollar 
reach through obstacles, I too 
appreciate and side with you In 
your plight. 

The question I ask with you is 
what can be done to prevent this 
taking of advantage by a local 
police force, (and perhaps later 
a judge) which does not neces- 

sarily care to consider the 
make up of the community they 
are employed to serve — the stu- 
dent. There must be a limit to 
this impersonal, inconsiderate 

As a member of the Commu- 
ter Affairs Sub-Committee I and 
the other members representing 
the commuters met and dis- 
cussed this matter shortly after 
you assumed the task of making 
your case known. There is Incor- 
porated in the general laws of 
the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts a statute regulating the 
manner of establishing fines hi 

accordance with violations of the 
established regulations. We hope 
to have a full explanation of this 
statute for you soon. In the 
meantime, we agree, there 
should be some way in which a 
little more consideration could 
be melded Into this policing. 

We don't have all the answers 
for you at the moment, but we 
can assure you that due to your 
efforts this argument did not 
'fall on deaf jars."

USIA 'Image' Film well Received 
Depicts JFK,s Drums and Lightening 

LEGON, Ghana (CPS) — "A 
classic film on perhaps the 
greatest man in the century," 
said the poster in Mensah Sar- 
bah Hall at the University of 
Ghana. "You are cordially in- 

The classic film, sponsored by 
the university's Student Rep- 
resentative Council, turned out 
to be the U.S. Information 
Agency's recent and controver- 
sial tribute to President John 
Kennedy. As a special bonus, a 
re-run of the "Hootenany" tele- 
vision show filmed at the Uni- 
versity, of Virginia and featuring 
South African singer Miriam 
Makeba, was thrown In. 

The film, "Years of Lightning, 
Day of Drums," created a con- 
troversy in the United States 
when a number of theaters 
wanted to show the film despite 
a Congressional ban imposed 
several years ago on the domes- 
tic showing of any USIA ma- 
terial developed for foreign use. 

After near rave reviews over- 
seas and several special previews 
In the United States, a number 
of congressmen and several 
newspapers started a campaign 
to exclude the Kennedy film 
from the ban. 

Such a bill cleared Congress 
and was signed by the President 
last fall and the film only re- 
cently had its U.S. premiere in 
New York. 

The University of Ghana 
showing was scheduled for a 
warm, clear evening, Chain 
were brought out into a dormi- 

tory courtyard and a large 
screen set up on the dining hall 
steps. Although it was exam 
time and the film had already 
been shown once on the campus, 
a large crowd turned out. More 
than half of the 250 students 
had to settle for standing room 
for the nearly two-hour show. 

Not sure whether they would 
be able to see the film back hi 
the United States, a group of 29 
American students and faculty 
members cancelled a scheduled 
discussion meeting and joined 
the Ghanaian students at the 

An assassin shot John F. Ken- 
nedy, but John F. Kennedy 
didn't die, said the narrator. 
"No man could take away years 
of lightning with a single day 
of drums." 

The film alternates between 
scenes of "the Kennedy funeral 
(the day of drums) and high- 
lights of the young President's 
years in office (the years of 
lightning). Aside from some col- 
or footage of the funeral, it con- 
tains little that would be new to 
Americans. It seems doubtful 
that the film will cause much 
fuss during its U.S. showing — 
or even if it was worth the fuss 
it caused. 

It is, of course, also Instructive 
as an example of the image the 
U.S. seeks to present abroad. In 
this ease, at least, the truth Is 
frankly presented — even on such 
touchy Issues as racial discrlm- 
where the behavior of 
Is certain to 

disturb Africans and other non- 
white peoples of the world. 

At the University of Ghana 
the film was well received and 
there is no doubt that John F. 
Kennedy remains a popular fig- 
ure among Africans. The film 
sparked occasional laughter, but 
none aimed at JFK. 

Many students were amused 
by a shot of the Berlin Wall. 
The only things East German 
refugees who escaped the wall 
could bring with them were their 
freedom and their families, the 
narrator said. In Ghana, as in 
much of Africa, this is quite a 
bit of baggage. "Families" are 
extended groups of uncles, aunts, 
cousins, and grandparents, in ad- 
dition to mothers, fathers, broth- 
ers and sisters. 

Laughter also greeted some 
mild tirades on the evils of com- 
munism, which, fortunately, oc- 
cupied only a few minutes of the 
film. Some students later said

Keeping the Summer Arts 
Program running smoothly is 
quite a job, especially when you 
start the job right in the mid- 
dle of a jam-packed UMass sum- 

Not so, says Mrs. Lois Frey, 
new Activities Program Advisor 
who had taken over her present 
job just when the Summer Arts 
Program '66 was in its first, 
sink-or-swim beginning stages. 

Organizing student events for 
upcoming years and helping stu- 
dents implement their own plans 
is a demanding job, but the UM 
grad. ('64— B.S. in Recreation) 
has been doing a fine job in the 
opinion of her collegues. 

Formerly assistant director 
and program director of the 
Service Club at W estover A.F.B., 
Mrs. Frey was roommates with 
her predecessor, Mrs. Mary 
Hodzekewicz (then Mary Alden) 
and kept up the association after 
college, often helping Mary in 
her duties as program director. 

When asked why she accepted 
the job this summer, she 
summed up her feelings when 
she said that she liked working 
with the age group. 

Military Forces 
Deans To 
Resign en Mass 

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina 
(CPS) — Eight of the 10 deans 
of the University of Buenos 
Aires have resigned following 
the military regime's decree tak- 
ing over the eight national uni- 

The two other deans, of the 
Colleges of Law and Medicine, 
said they were studying the de- 
cree, which ordered all rectors 
and deans of faculties to pledge 
their loyalty to the regime with- 
in 48 hours or resign. 

The rectors of the national 
universities of La Plata, Cor- 
doba, and Del Lltoral and most 
of their deans also resigned. Re- 
ports from the four other na- 
tional universities covered by the 
decree said the military an- 
nouncement was being studied. 

It is expected that the mili- 
tary regime will fill the re- 
signed posts with members of 
the Catholic universities at 
Santa Fe, Cordoba, and Buenas 
Aires. The country's four Ro- 
man Catholic universities were 
not affected by the decree. 

The national universities tra- 
ditionally have operated auto- 
nomously. Their buildings had 
been off-limits to the police and 
other government forces. 

Late last week, a few hours 
after the new military regime of 
Lt Gen. Juan Carlos Onganla 
had ordered the seizure of the 
universities, more than a hun- 
dred teachers and students were 
severely beaten by policemen 
who entered several University 
of Buenos Aires schools and 
classrooms In the capital. 

Extreme right-wing elements 
in the new military regime are 
given credit for pressing On- 
gania into taking control of the 
universities to prevent them 
from becoming centers of op-

Nine European Lecturers Grabbed 
By Rhodesian Government Police 

SALISBURY, Rhodesia (CPS) 
—Rhodesia's multi-racial college 
in Salisbury closed down last 
week after police sweeped in at 
dawn and detained nine Euro- 
pean lecturers and at least nine 
African students. 

A notice posted at the college 
said Principal Alan Milton had 
decided that the college must 
close forthwith instead of on 
August 20, the start of the nor- 
mal holiday. 

The notice, signed by the war- 
den of one of the college halls, 
said: "Under the circumstances 
tat which it has been placed, the 
acting principal has decided 
that the college must close 
forthwith and that the vacation 
scheduled to begin on August 20 
should begin today." 

"Students should make ar- 
rangements to leave the college 

as soon as possible," the notice 

Informed sources said the lec- 
turers held hi the police raid 
were five Britons, two Dutch, 
one Canadian, and one Italian. 

Reports that four of the lec- 
turers were later released are 

Sources said that the detained 
students and teachers were tak- 
en to the main Salisbury police 
station where they were charged 
under the Rhodesia Law and Or- 
der Act. 

The police raid brought to a 
head unrest at the university 
which has simmered and erupted 
periodically since Rhodesia de- 
clared its independence unilat- 
erally from Great Britain last

Bright New Star of Comedy 
To Entertain at Homecoming '66 

|Jackie Vernon, who has been 
hailed by any number of show 
business pundits as one of the 
brightest new stars on the com- 
edy horizon, came dangerously 
close to quitting the entertain- 
ment world entirely. His deci- 
sion to do otherwise ranks as 
one of the most fortuitious 
breaks in recent years for audi- 
ences everywhere, and for U- 
Mass students who will be able 
to see Jackie Saturday night at 
Homecoming '66. 

A native of New York City, 
Jackie attended the City College 
where he majored in an odd 
combination of subjects: physics, 
drama and music. He formed his 
own comedy band and was a 
small-scale success for a while, 
playing lesser clu\* across the 

He decided to step out on his 
own as a comedian in 1955 and 
found the going .ough. One 
night, while appearing at a small 
club in San Francisco, he took 
a good, long look at the audi- 
ence—a collection of unhappy 
party-goers and moped off the 
stage at the conclusion of his 
act, ready to retire from show 

Fortunately for Mr. Vernon— 
and for the public at large — 
one of the patrons in the club 
happened to be Danny Kaye. 

Kaye ran back siage to see 
Vernon, having diagnosed the 
ailment that was plaguing him 
as he made his exit. For over an 
hour, the great comedian gave 
a pep talk to the novice. By the 
time Jackie Vernon left the 
club that night, he was con- 
vinced that nothing could stop 

The road to the top proved to 
be just as arduous as ever, and 
it wasn't until an engagement 
at the Playboy Club, in Chicago, 
in the early 1960*8 that Jackie 
Vernon was accorded a hearty 
welcome by the entertainment 
industry in general. 

Jack Paar booked Jackie for 
two appearances on his NBC 
opus. Jackie was so successful 
on his first appearance that 
Paar changed the deal into a 
three-time engagement. "Of all 
the r.ew comedians," Paar told 
the nationwide audience, "this 
is the funniest that I've heard." 

The Paar apearance proved *x> 
be a springboard to greater suc- 
cesses, on the Ed Sulivan Show 
(over 15 appearances) and The 
Tonight Show on which he has 
created classics of TV comedy 
with Jerry Lewis, Joey Bishop 
and, of course, Johnny Carson. 
The '6-'67 season will also see 
Jackie Vernon appear as guest 
star on the Dean Martin Show. 

Jackie Vernon's antics have 

inspired much praise from the 
greats in the business as well as 
critics. Bob Hope is quoted as 
saying of Jackie Vernon, "This 
is the greatest talent I've ever 
seen." High praise, indeed, from 
The King of Them All." 

All in all — a winning new ap- 
proach to the world of comedy, 
and one that makes Jackie Ver- 
non a prime contender for the 
top rung of comics' ladder. Be 
sure to be watching for Jackie 
Vernon at Homecoming '66, 
Saturday, Oct. 22. 

Most of the African students, 
and some of the whites as well, 
and a cross section of the profes- 
sors opposed the unilateral dec- 

Thirty-one students, 29 Afri- 
cans and two Europeans, had 
been suspended earlier and or- 
dered to leave the campus as a 
result of a demonstration at the 
college's commencement exer- 
cises on July 17. 

The government has also 

threatened to withdraw finan- 
cial add from students who par- 
ticipate in anti-government de- 

The target of the commence- 
ment-day demonstrations was 
Prime Minister Ian Smith's 
"rebel" government, but the ac- 
tual demonstration was sparked 
by the presence of "honored 
guests" — two of Smith's minis- 
ters and the main speaker, Dr. 
J. P. Dumity, the principal of the 
South African University of 
Cape Town. 

The demonstrators disrupted 
the ceremony by singing nation- 
alist songs and shouting at Du- 
mity. When about 50 of them 
tried to block entrances t"> the 

white students tried to stop 
them and fighting broke out. 
Rhodesian police also joined in 
the fighting against the demon- 

Once hailed as a model for 
other African institutions, the 
university is now said to be con- 
sidered a hotbed of liberalism 
and subversion by the Smith 
government, which is deter- 
mined to bring it to its heels in 
order to stifle the protest there.

UMass Physics Team 
Probes Atom Force 

A million photographs — all dealing with particles less than 
.000000000001 of a centimeter in diameter. 

This is the basic raw material of a new high-energy physics 
project at the University of Massachusetts investigating the forces 
and particles within the atomic nucleus. 

The UMass team is using the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient 
Synchrotron to amass its million photos of nuclear events. Dr. Robert 
L. Gluckstern, physics department head, estimates that the million- 
photo goal will be reached sometime this summer. The UMass re- 
searchers, who began the project last fall, expect to spend at least 
two years in scanning and analysis of the photos. 

The Brookhaven AGS is a high energy accelerator that produces 
various secondary beams — tiny particles that have been found by 
physicists to be intimately involved with powerful forces within the 
atomic nucleus. These forces are believed to be ultimately responsible 
for the form and order of the universe and for the atom's tremendous 
energy. The UMass work is part of a wide effort by many research 
teams to investigate what happens when high-energy particles collide 
with other nuclear and subnuclear particles. 

Atpresent, four UMass specialists in high-energy physics are tak- 
ing part in the project, aided by a staff of six technicians and a 
large group of graduate and undergraduate assistants. Dr. S. Steven 

Yamamoto, a former member of the Brookhaven staff who has 
participated in key experiments there, heads the group. 

Others are Dr. Stanley S. Hertzbach, formerly of Johns Hopkins 
University, and Dr. Richard R. Kofler, formerly of the University 
of Wisconsin. The fourth member is Dr. Janice Button Shafer, now 
a member of the staff of the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory of the 
University of California in Berkeley, who will join the group in 
September as co-head. Dr. Gerald Meisner, a recent graduate of the 
University of California in Berkeley, is expected to join the group 
soon as a research associate. 

The Brookhaven AGS is a 33 billion-electron-volt device that 
accelerates protons around a half-mile ring of huge magnets at close 
to the speed of light. These high energy particles strike a primary 
target and produce secondary particles such as the K minus meson 
which the UMass group uses in its nuclear investigations. 

The invisible particles are diverted from the accelerating ring 
into a bubble chamber — a glass-sided vessel filled with hydrogen 
cooled to its liquid state and under high pressure. Particles leave a 
trail of bubbles that lasts a fraction of a second; synchronized cam- 
eras photograph the trail and record the result on 70mm film. 

The Brookhaven AGS can produce a burst of particles suitable 
for photographing every few seconds. The UMass team takes its turn 
with other research teams on the tight Brookhaven schedule, which 
runs around the clock seven days a week. 

The photos taken by the UMass team at Brookhaven are re- 
turned as developed negatives to Hasbrouck Laboratory on the Am- 
several times their size. Trained technicians called scanners search 
herst campus for scanning by special machines that project them 
each photo for significant particle events, looking for kinked, forked 
or broken bubble trails showing that particles have collided, disin- 
tegrated or otherwise interacted. 

Once the scanning process has sifted out an accumulation of 
related particle events, the selected photos are processed through a 
measuring machine that transfers the precise locations of the desired 
particle tracks to computer tape. 

Using the UMass CDC 3600 computer, the speed of particles can 
be calculated from the bubble spacing; a particle's electrical charge 
and momentum can be obtained by measuring the curvature of its 
track caused by the bubble chamber magnetic field; and the life- 
time of the particle can be calculated by measuring the track length. 
A high-speed computer like the CDC 3600 is a necessity for these 
calculations because of their mathematical complexity. 

The members of the UMass group and their collaborators at 
Yale and Brookhaven plan to present preliminary results of their 
work at the bi-annual International Conference on High Energy 
Physics to be held in Berkeley, Calif., this Fall.

Two books written by Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts faculty 
members are being published 
this summer by the University 
of Massachusetts Press. 

"The Rhetoric of Tragedy: 
Form in Stuart Drama" by 
Charles Osborne McDonald was 
published on June 29. The auth- 
or is asociate professor of Eng- 
lish, having previously taught at 
Duke, Bowling Green and Ohio 
State Universities. He has writ- 
ten scholarly articles on Chau- 
cer, Shakespeare, John Ford and 
Restoration comedy. 

The book is a study of the 
evolution of Renaissance Eng- 
lish drama, including detailed 
formal analyses of several ma- 
jor dramatic works by Shakes- 
peare and his contemporaries. 

Publication date for "Jean Gi- 

radoux, The Theatre of Victory 
and Defeat" by Agnes G. Ray- 
mond is set for August 15. The 
author is a professor of Ro- 
mance Languages at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. Her study 
was first published in French by 
a Paris publisher in 1963. 

While studying in France, Dr. 
Raymond became interested in 
Jean Giraudoux as a citizen, and 
in the puzzling political implica- 
tions of his writings. Hers is the 
first serious attempt to study 
the work of Jean Giraudoux in 
its historical context, showing 
how victory in the First World 
War and defeat in the Second 
are reflected in his works "So- 
dome et Gomorrhe" and "The 
Madwoman of Chaillot," 

In conclusion, the author re- 
veals for the first time that Gi- 

raudoux may have been the per- 
petrator of an extraordinary lit- 
erary hoax.

UM Says Farewell To Japanese Visitors 


Summer Reporter 

Lost Saturday the Japanese Institute 
of 1966 ended at the University. A fare- 
well party the night before sponsored by 
Eugene Field House was attended by 
President Lederle and his wife along 
with the Japanese students and their 
roommates and friends. It was a fitting 
end to a program that was described by 
almost everyone as being a complete 
success. It was a very sad group of men 
and women that left the campus early 
Saturday morning. 

Among those who left was a pretty young Japanese 
girl named Chlkako Suglnome. Miss Suglnome is the 
daughter of the President of Hokkaido University, the 
sister university of the University of Massachusetts. Lo- 
cated in Sapporo, Japan, Hokkaido was founded In 1876 
with the aid of an American. 

The American was none other than William Smith 

Sisterhood with Hokkaido Univ. Still Maintained 

Clark, first President of what was then Massachusetts 
Agricultural College, or as it was affectionately called, 
Mass Aggie. 

When the Japanese Government decided to establish 
Its first agricultural college, It requested its American 
ambassador to seek a President and three professors. 
Ambassador Yoshida was very Impressed with the Agri- 
cultural College which Massachusetts had established 
under the Morrill Act of 1863. There was a great deal 
of controversy over the site of new college, but Smith 
used all of his influence to establish the college in his 
home town, Amherst. Ambassador Yoshida was Im- 
pressed both with President Clark and with the fact 
that both Amherst and Sapporo were both on the 42° 
latitude and that the climate and topography were very 

Clark was persuaded to ask for a leave of absence 
from the Board of Trustees and go to Japan. With him, 
he took three Mass Aggie graduates, William Wheeler, 
David Penhallow, and William Brooks. 

Clark set to work as soon as he arrived in Sapporo. 
Although he stayed only eight months, he accomplished 

a great deal and set the University well on its way to 
future greatness. Mass Aggie served as its model, and 
Clark and his assistants and students all worked very 
hard those first months. ". . . his labors were Herculean" 
states the Semi-Centennial Publication of Hokkaido in 

Clark took on many duties which were not required 
of him. He tried very hard to set an example for his 
students to follow and many were very impressed. Be- 
fore he left, he also formed a Covenant of Believers in 
Jesus, which many of them joined. 

When it came time for him to leave Hokkaido, his 
students and friends gave him a very sad farewell. His 
departing words, which came to be immortal, were 
"Boys, be ambitious." The letters BBA are still on the 
University emblem. 

Clark and Wheeler who succeded him as President 
left a strong impression on Japanese educational lead- 
ers. Japan was at the time in transition from a feudal 
society to a modern society and was susceptible to for- 
eign influence.

traumatic moments in trying to 
make sense of and faithfully re- 
cord senatorial debate, the sec- 
retary takes the liberty of leav- 
ing a parting message with his 
tongue only partially in cheek, 
he herewith shares with them a 
quotation from one of his favor- 
ite authors: 

"To believe that such talk 
really ever came out of peo- 
ple's mouths would be to be- 
lieve that there was a time 
when time was of no value to 
a person who thought he uad 
something to cay; when it was 
the custom to spread a two- 
minute remark out to ten; 
when a man's mouth was a 
rolling mill, and busied itself 
all day long in turning four- 
foot pigs of thought into 
thirty-foot bars of conversa- 
tional railroad iron by atten- 
uation; when subjects were 
seldom faithfully stuck to, but 
the talk wandered all around 
and arrived nowhere; when 
conversations consisted main- 
ly of irrelevancies, with here 
and there a relevancy, a rele- 
vancy with an embarrassed 
look as not being able to ex- 
plain how it got there . . ." 
(From "Fenimore Coopers 
Literary Offenses" by Mark 

Mellowing his opinion of Fac- 
ulty Senate activities somewhat 
since his remarks at a meeting 
May 20, 1965, past secretary 
William J. Mellen now praises 
the new, improved structure and 
running of the 115-member or- 

"We used to get bogged down 
on the Senate floor in endless 
debate," he says frankly, "but 
now that most of the real work 
is done in committees, by the 
time it reaches the floor, it's so 
thoroughly researched, most peo- 
ple who know nothing about the 
matter aren't tempted to express 
their views and waste time." 

Sitting in his meticulous of- 
fice, the professor of avian (bird) 
physiology exclaims, "What do 
we talk about? Everything and 
anything! We have a committee 
to cover any topic on campus: 
academics, athletics, student af- 
fairs; the list goes on and on. In 
fact, under Pres. John W. Led- 
erle's administration, many uni- 
versity committees have been 
brought under Faculty Senate

Students Pegged Overambitous 
By Freshmen English Director 

Does Not Descry Administration Control 


"Students don't want to be 
students," says Everett Emer- 
son, acting director of freshman 
English at UMass. 

Commenting on student press 
in general, Emerson feels that 
students frequently attempt to 
assume control of areas of edu- 
cation which are germain to the 
administration or faculty, or 
both (such as the type of tests 
given), and most often attempt 
to do so through the medium of 
the student press. 

Because as the necessary re- 
lationship existing between the 
students and the University, he 
believes that the students "get 

nowhere" in trying to assured 
too much control, i'ecogni/'jig 
that there first must u,. an un- 
derstanding that the faculty is 
permanent and the students are 
transients, Emerson emphasizes, 
however, that the efforts of stu- 
dents are by no means futile. "If 
students focus on things they 
can do something about, they 
can get somewhere," he declared. 
Seeing the purpose of the col- 
lege press as twofold, the re- 
cently appointed director inter- 
prets its role as a means by 
which "responsible people can 
air opinions" as more essential 
than its function as a news

Commenting on the University 
of Massachusetts and the Colle- 
gian specifically, Emerson feels 
that it is also the responsibility 
of the paper (through the stu- 
dent body) to pressure the state 
legislature to make this a bet- 
ter university. "People here 
ought to get at issues which 
would make it better, rather 
than trying to take over the 
president's job," he continued. 
Complete student freedom of 
choice and responsibility for 
their issues is admirable in the- 
ory, Emerson said, but he feels 
that complete autonomy of the 
student press, especially at a 
state college or university, is 
impossible in practice. 

"The administration has to as- 
sume a position of certain con- 
trol, because of the state legis- 
lature. And before the paper 
can be more autonomous, the 
administration must become 
more so," he explained. 

Does any university's control 
affect the quality of the stu- 
dent press? Emerson thinks 
not. He does not regard a facul- 
ty adviser as synonomous with 
a policeman. He believes an ad- 
viser should be available for 
consultation to student journal- 
ists. Acting in this capacity, the 
adviser will not suppress individ- 
uality or personal pride in the 
student's finished product 

Comparing the Collegian pol- 
icy with other schools, Emer- 
son feels that students lure 
take a rather casual attitude 
toward both student journalism 
and the campus paper. The 
paper need not be supported 
financially by the school — it 
may be subscribed to and de- 
livered, with the editors and 
business manager assuming 
both profits and losses, as Is 
done in some schools. Emerson 
feels that in these circumstan- 
ces, perhaps the reader audi-

SSEC Still Divided Over Constitution 

by Pat Petow 
Summer Reporter 

A quorum of two-thirds of 
the members being attained, 
the Wednesday meeting of the 
Executive Council came to or- 

Absent at the meeting, which 
had been set for 8:30 p.m., one 
and a half hours after its usual 
time, was Elaine Bell. 

Miss Bell's motion the week 
before delayed the meeting in 
order to allow Councilors to 
stop in at the Eugene Field 
House tea for faculty at 7 p.m. 
as well as to attend to their 
duties. Later, a notice posted 
in Field referred to 7:30 p.m. 
as the starting time, but that 
information was not known 
when the motion passed. 

Proceeding with announce- 
ments and committee reports. 
Council turned to an agen- 
da motion which it defeated 
and one made under special 
business which carried. 

By then it was 9:42 p.m. as 
the body considered a motion 
(to postpone the constitutional 
referendum for a week) intro- 
duced by Joe Ross and second- 
ed by Marshall Nadan. "In all 
of the haste in the typing, an 
entire section has been left 
out," said Ross of the consti- 
tution copies, prepared for the 
student body referendum held 
yesterday (Thursday, August 

Section 5 of Article III of the 
constitution approved by the 
Council on August 3 was lack- 
ing. In the committee draft, 
the section, called Article IV, 
described a Summer Court of 
Justice to consist of the three 
men and women respectively of 
Men's and Women's Judiciary. 
The Court, charged with trying 
all violations of laws passed 
by the Council, would review 
the constitutionality of By- 
Laws. Chiefly, the Court's fun- 
ction would be in its separate 
sittings as men's and women's 
judiciaries. From it an appeal 
to the Faculty Discipline Board 
might be made except in the 
review of By-Laws. 

But the section-5-less consti- 
tution did not describe men's 
and women's judiciary in an 
early provision. 

It was clearly established in 
the debate that the infamous 

section was not omitted care- 
lessly but on the advice of 
Council advisor Lew Gurwitz, 
Secretary Caryn Goldberg left 
it out. Miss Goldberg had come 
away from the "amendment" 
session at which the document 
received Council approval, ac- 
cording to Gurwitz, not know- 
ing whether section 5 was in- 
cluded or not. 

Taking responsibility for the 
omission, Gurwitz told the 
Council that he assumed sec- 
tion 5 had been removed by a 
mendment inasmuch as the 
Student Senate's Court of Jus- 
tice has not met in quite a few 

Having been given the floor, 
Gurwitz held it long enough to 
suggest the procedure, which 
received Council endorsement.

Ross and Nadan objected. 

Rising in support of the post- 
poning motion. Councilor Na- 
dan asserted that constitution 
copies were not available four 
days before the referendum as 
had been promised. But Miss 
Goldberg replied that the cop- 
ies were ready during the day 
on Monday and countered by 
asking Nadan why he had not 
looked after their distribution. 
The latter answered he thought 
that was the responsibility of 
the Publicity Committee. 

Cancelling a referendum 
would look bad, continued the 
Brett representative, but con- 
ducting it with the distributed 
constitution different from the 
one approved by the Council, 
would be far worse — would be 
"an outlandish thing." 

Although "Many students on 
this campus don't give a damn 
about the constitution," Nadan 
pleaded that the few interested 
students should have the op- 
portunity of reading the actual 
constitution. The proposed poll- 
ing place correction short 
found little sympathy in the de-

"The program is one of the 
very best going." "Probably 
the best thing that'll ever hap- 
pen to us." 

These are just some of the 
enthusiastic replies from high 
school sophomores and juniors 
taking part in the Upward 
Bound Program. An education- 
al program sponsored by state 
and federal governments, Up- 
ward Bound Is designed to help 
motivate and prepare students 
to go on to college. 

There are ten such programs 

in the country, three of which 
are in Massachusetts. These 
are run by Brandeis, Harvard, 
and the University of Massa- 

Approximately 100 students 
are in each program. They 
have been chosen by either 
their principal or their guid- 
ance councilors. The students 

chosen are in either their soph- 
omore or junior year and wiM 
continue in the program until 
they graduate from high 

No tuition is paid by the stu- 
dents. Bather, the government 
pays the student ten dollars a 
week during the summer and 
five dollars a week in the win- 
ter as long as he remains in 
the program. Also the govern- 
ment aids the graduating parti- 
cipants in the program in se- 
curing loans and scholarships. 

The program started July 1, 

and is going to run until Aug- 
ust 27. A typical week consists 
of four classes, math, social 
studies, English, and group 
counselling, four days a week. 
The class periods are fifty min- 
utes long. Students have the 
further opportunity to elect af- 
ternoon or evening classes in 
physics or biology. These 

courses are taught by regular 
high school and private school 

Wednesdays and Saturdays 
are devoted to field trips, while 
Sundays and evenings are free. 
Some of the field trips so far 
have been to places such as the 
beach, the movies, and the Mu- 
seum of Science.

Letters to the Editor 

Formerly Apathetic Upperclassman 
Angered by "Undemocratic" Action 

To the Editor: 

Although I am now a senior 
here at UMass, I have never be- 
fore made any attempt to in- 
volve myself with anything con- 
nected with student government. 
If anyone could be called apa- 
thetic, it is I. 

This morning, August 11th, I 
sat down in the SU Lounge and 
-aw next to me a printed sheet 
with a stated opinion in regard 
to voting Yes or No for the Con- 
stitution. I had no intention of 
voting, but I read the sheet and 
replaced it on the chair next to 

Thirty minutes later I saw the 
most nauseating, undemocratic 
action I have ever seen. A young 
man (??) began walking around 
the lounge picking up all copies 
d1 the sheet which I had just 
read. Apparently, he disagreed 
with the stated opinion and 
made up his mind to crumple up 
every copy he could find. He 
picked up five or six and then 
saw the last one, next to me. Al- 
though I couldn't believe what I 
had just seen, I had sense 
enough not to let him take the 
sheet. He walked away quite as- 
sured that few people would get

if the opinion on the sheet were 
quite unfounded on evidence, 
it is still an opinion and unless

Farewell . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
After Clark left Hokkaido, 
other Mass Aggie professors kept 
up the close association between 
the two colleges. This close asso- 
ciation lapsed in the 1890's al- 
though an exchange of letters 
and visits by profs continued. 

Then in 1956 President Mather 
of the University of Massachu- 
setts went to Sapporo to attend 
Hokkaido's 80th Anniversary. 
President Mather met President 
Suginome and an informal agree- 
ment was reached between the 
two men. Mather presented Su- 
ginome with an honory Doctor 
of Laws Degree of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

Three months later a package 
arrived at President Mather's 
office. It contained the bear 
which now lives on the veranda 
over the main entrance to the 
Student Union. With the bear 
came a letter which told part of 

the story of how it came here. 
The letter is worth quoting in 

To whom it may concern: 

This box contains a wooden 
carving of an Hokkaido bear 
carved by natives of the Island 
of Hokkaido, Japan. 

It is being presented by the 
students and faculty of the 
University of Hokkaido to their 
counterparts at the University 
of Massachusetts. These two 
schools have adopted each 
other as "sister universities." 

The President of the Uni- 
versity of Hokkaido asked our 
U. 8. Air Force commander in 
that locality if the Air Force 
could possibly deliver this 
present, as the university could 
not afford the freight shipment 
of it. In the interest of foster- 
ing further good wiU and 
friendliness between our Amer- 
ican airmen and the Japanese 
in Hokkaido, we are trying to 
deliver this gift . . .

And so it was that the bear 
arrived in one piece at the Uni- 
versity just a few months before 
the spanking new Student Union 
was about to open. When the 
Union opened in February, 1957, 
the bear, called "Hokkie" by 
some present day student ad- 
mirers, was placed above the en- 
trance in gratitude to our 
Japanese friends. 

Later that year President Su- 
ginome came to UMass and in 
November a formal contract was 
signed between the two sister 
universities. The contract was 
under the auspices of the Inter- 
national Co-operation Adminis- 
tration, and it expired in 1961. 
But, the exchange program and 
other features of the contract 
were kept up by UMass and 
Hokkaido after the expiration 

President Suginome and his 
wife came once again to UMass 
in 1963 to partcipate in our Cen- 
tennial Charter Day Ceremonies. 
This time he met John Lederle, 
the University's new President. 

This year President Sugi- 
nome's daughter Chikako made 
UMass her home for four weeks. 
Chikako graduated this yea 
from Rikkyo University in 
Tokyo. Her major was Anglo- 
American Literature. 

Her first time in che United 
States Miss Suginome declared, 
"It's a great pleasure and privi- 
lege to come to this University. 
Because we are sister universi- 
ties, I have a strong feeling to- 
ward UMass." She aded, "I real- 
ly enjoyed everything. The suc- 
cess of this program is due to 
Dr. Varley." 



LITTLE MAN ON CAMPUS Faculty Senate Secretary looks Back . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 

Hie Senate gavel taps approx- 
imately twice a month on Thurs- 
days at 4:15. "We don't take at- 
tendance," Prof. Mellen explains. 
"If a senator sees something that 
interests him on the agenda, he 
comes. However, labs and field 
trips frequently prevent mem- 
bers from attending." 

Strictly an advisory body, the 
Faculty Senate is responsible 
first to the administration and 
finally to the board of trustees. 
"We held a special vote last 
summer to appoint a senator to 
attend all trustee meetings," the 
professor reports. We tried to 
convince the board to accept the 
Amherst site for the new Medi- 
cal School. "However," he smiles, 
"they refused, which proves Just 
how advisory we are." 

Looking around the room, 
which contains a huge potted 

plant in a corner and tiny roos- 
ter statuettes perched on his 
desk, he continues; "The most 
important matter we're dealing 
with this year, as far as I'm 
concerned, is student-faculty re- 

"I believe definite progress 

has been made on all three 
fronts," he offers good-natured- 
ly. "There is disagreement. The 
faculty sometimes feel that stu- 
dents expect too much too fast 
and the age difference between 
instructor and student, in it- 
self, causes each group to view 
situations in slightly different 
lights. "However," he adds, "dis- 
agreement is healthy." 

Since Provost Oswald Tippo's 
arrival on campus, Mellen be- 
lieves Senate meetings have liv- 
ened up considerably. Often sub- 
stituting for Pre*. Lederle as 
Senate chief, Tippo's tremend- 
ously great humor spices up even 
the dullest of bills. 

Most talk concentrates on uni- 
versity affairs, says Mellen, few 
members stress improvements in 
faculty conditions, since the ad- 
ministration itself is seeking 
higher salaries for them. How- 
ever, they do seek better medical 
plans, liability bills and more 
liberal sabbatical leave policies, 
he adds. 

All faculty members receive 
minutes and agendas from meet- 

ings. The majority are glad to be 
involved in forming university 
policy, the former secretary be- 
lieves. Membership greatly 
broadens the senaiui s views on 
other areas of university-wide 
study, he says. 

"Otherwise," Prof. Mellen 
adds, "you tend to bury yourself 
in a corner." 

Membership In the Senate also 
enhances work relationships 
among faculty. Since most in- 
structors don't get together so- 
cially off campus, a senator 
comes in contact with many col- 
leagues whom he would not or- 
dinarily meet, Mellen explains. 

The professor concludes 
thoughtfully: "The best product 
of the expanding power and mer- 
it of the Faculty Senate is that 
better faculty members will be 
tempted to accept nominations 
for senate positions, whereas in 
the past, they refused to have 
anything to do with the 'non- 
sense of faculty meetings'." 

Now if there are no further 
motions from the floor, this 
meeting is considered adjourned! 

Summer Exec Members Complaint "Garbled" 

Dennis Byng Display 

Opens Monday Night 

(Continued from page 2) 
bating Councilor. 

Favoring the August 11 date, 
which he proposed, Dave O'- 
Connor told Ross and Nadan, 
'No one's trying to pull any- 

ling over." Continuing, but in- 

.rrupted by a reminder to par- 
liamentary courtesy, O'Connor 
went on, "There appears to be, 
for some reason, an attempt to 
delay the constitution." 

How enlightened the student 
body is should weigh on our 
consciences, O'Connor lectured 
in the debate. 

In a late development, Ross 
undertook a campaign Thurs- 
day morning to defeat the con- 
stitution. "The Summer Execu- 
tive Council is trying to rail- 
road a slipshod constitution!!!" 
charged the flier which Ross 
began distributing about 10 

Besides referring to the 
drafting of the constitution's 
substance as a "shoddy job," 
"slapped together haphazardly 
in less than two week's time," 
improper procedure in the ref- 
erendum received censure. 

"This referendum was called 
on short notice and copies of 
the Constitution were typed so 
hurriedly that major mistakes 
were made," said the vote-No- 

Although, doubtful of suc- 
ceeding in defeating the pro- 
posed constitution, Ross said 
Thursday that he thought sanc- 
tion of the Council by such 
bodies as the Student Senate or 
Board of Trustees might re- 
main unaffected if the Council 
ended its first summer without 
a constitution. However, sum- 
mer student government might 
proceed in 1967 without such 
higher-authority endorsement 
added the Councilor. 

Ross told the Collegian that 
he had joined In the unanimous 
Council acceptance of the con- 
stitution, but would have voted 
against it had he to do it over. 
But said the representative, if 
It were not for the copy errors, 
his only further action would 
have been a "no" vote Thurs- 

In earlier work, the Council 
established a petty cash fund 
on a notion introduced by the 
indefatigable Ross. Up to $25 
may be obtained from the 
Treasurer, Ann McGunigle, eli- 
minating the need for prior 
Council okay for small re- 
quests. Last week the body had 
allotted $15 to the Publicity 
Committee for publicizing the 
constitution referendum, 

Chairman Jackie Somma's 
efforts, no doubt aided by the 
outlay, were praised by Presi- 
dent Paul Schlosberg. 

A typical SSEC motion-de- 
bate arose over the agenda's 
C 35, which would have dis- 
pensed with the reading of the 
minutes since each member re- 
ceives a copy. 

Nadan seconded this bill of 
Ross' and later was apparently 
the only member voting with 
the author. 

Objecting to the motion, Joe 
Doucette asked the Parliamen- 
tarian to rule it out of order, 
inasmuch as the Council had 
previously voted to adopt Rob- 
erts' Rules and reading of the 
minutes was provided for 
there. Expectedly Ross appeal- 
ed the decision that it was out 
of order, observing that it was 
disgusting that a harangue 
start over a matter designed 
to expedite procedure. 

Fearing a prolonged debate 
on the ruling, Doucette with- 
drew his appeal to the chair 
and obligingly Parliamentarian 
Gurwitz went along and with- 
drew his decision. Councilor 
Ross even withdrew his objec- 
tion to the out of order ruling 
before the original motion was 
enthusiastically defeated. 

Discussed in the announce- 
ment period was a proposed 
all-star softball game of the 
summer league's best to be 
played with a team called the 
Gators, made up of Mississippi 
Valley State College students, 
working in the Amherst area. 
The Southern players have al- 
ready trounced a UMass sum- 
mer team. 

Intramural booster Doucette 
asked that representatives in 
Borma.ii work with him in get- 
ting about $35 from that dorm 
and his, Brett, for the game 
and a reception afterwards. 
The all-star event is really a 
program for all of the houses' 
participation, assured Doucette. 
On another subject, the sug- 
gestion was put forward by the 
representative heading the in- 
tramural program that per- 
haps the Council had been too 
successful. Low attendance 
during the new evening pool 
hours might be due to the fact 
that the time is also taken up 
with athletic competition and 
practice, said Doucette. 

In the Services Committee 
report, Nadan passed on to the 
Council what Gerald F. Scan- 
Ion, in charge of Campus Vend- 
ing, told him. A new company 

the Canteen Corporation of 
America, will operate all the 
vending machines except the 
Coca-Cola ones and milk ma- 
chines owned by subsidiaries of 
the soft-drink company, he 

The University, according to 
Scanlon, is insisting that coke 
and milk machines which do 
not work be removed. Between 
now and September, at least 
60%, possibly 75%, of vending 
will be by new machines. 

Chairman O'Connor of the 
Services Committee — which 
regularly meets Mondays at 
3:30 p.m. with only the follow- 
ing present, although it is open 
to the student body, Schlos- 
berg, Ross, Nadan, and Miss 
McGunigle — spoke again of li- 
brary use. He said that anti- 
cipated increase of at least dou- 
ble the previous patronage for 
the trial extended hours was 
not being met. Only 33 stu- 
dents were counted Monday 
night, he added. 

For the summer's main 
event, both glowing and pessi- 
mistic accounts were, as usual, 
received. Only 20 students out 
of an estimated need of 80 
have come forward for Miss 
McGunigle's Personnel and 
Training Services sub-commit- 
tee. Students willing to work 
for around an hour at the af- 
fair helping with refreshments 
or the gambling games were 
asked to contact the committee. 

Requesting that Council 
members contact their teach- 
ers to get faculty to work that 
evening, Su Kleiner reported 
that six faculty had agreed to 
donate their time while com- 
mittments from others were

News Analysis 

Small Referendum Turnout Captures High Emotions 


Summer Reporter 

The Summer Student Executive Council 
constitution received student body endorsement 
in a referendum conducted Thursday, August 
11. Acceptance of the results of that voting by 
the Council will put the frame of government 
in effect. 

Of all 524 students voting seven-tenths, or 82, said 


However, only a small number of summer students 
voted. Figures from the Registrar's Office show en- 
rollment of 1,606 undergraduates for the second ses- 
sion. Over half that number live off-campus while 777 
live in the four summer dormitories. (Field has 218, 
Dickinson 258, Gorman 180, Brett 126, off -campus 829.) 

Hence, 254 voters out of an eligible 1606 gives the 
total vote the statistic of being the vote of a little 

over one-sixth of the current student body. The affirm- 
ative vote has the lower percentage, one-ninth of the 
total student body. 

Small as the turnout was emotions did run high in 
the presence of a move to defeat the constitution in the 
referendum. (See last Friday's Collegian.) 

In an apparent move to heal wounded feelings and 
to restore some measure of good graces for the better 
reception of future ideas, the two Councilors who at- 
tempted to defeat the referendum will move for the 
acceptance of its results at the meeting tomorrow, 
August 17. 

"We haven't seen so much student interest on any 
campus issue all summer. We told the students what 
was going on so that they could vote intelligently. It 
was a good fight, even though marred by the actions 
of a few individuals, and we accept the results of the 

Joe Ross and Marshall Nadan, co-chairmen of the 

committee to defeat the constitution issued their state- 
ment Monday. Brett House, where each has his con- 
stituency, was the scene of their most successful ef- 
forts. Approximately 70 voters (in a turnout a little 
over one-half of the residents there, better than the 
University turnout as a whole) split evenly for and 

Editorializing by the Collegian won't be forthcoming 
inasmuch as the student body is acquainted with the 
pertinent facts of this referendum. 

The preparation of the proposed constitution copies 
was criticized, the turn-out was small, the campaign 
to defeat the constitution was hardly on so elevated a 
level as its participants believe, nearly three-tenths of 
the vote was in opposition due to such efforts, the 
counter-campaign was not on a level higher than the 
negative one.

SWAP Committee 

UM-Boston Fills the Bill- 

Considers Conclave State House Authorizes Purchase 



Summer Editor 

The Student Workshop for 
Activities Problems, better 
known to the UMass Campus 
as SWAP, is already busily 
planning for its eighth annual 
session scheduled for Oct. 1, 2, 
3, 1966 at the Red Lion Inn in 

SWAP, initiated eight years 
ago, has broadened its scope 
over the years from merely a 
one day program for the ex- 
change of ideas to a weekend 
set aside for faculty, adminis- 
tration and students to discuss 
and debate pertinent campus 
issues relating to the interests 
of each representative group. 

Every campus organization 
is represented at the confer- 
ence as well as each of the my- 
riad of administrative offices 
and many invited faculty 

The SWAP committee for 
1966 which has been planning 
for the event since March is 
comprised of Chairman John 
Webster, Jerry Benezra, facul- 
ty liason; Ellen Levine, public- 
ity; Ed DeMore, fraternities; 
Bob Fleischner and Helen Cas- 
soli, Major Activities; Barbara 
Cappriole, Sororities; Al Davis, 
Men's Dorms; Betsey Singer, 
Women's Dorms; Mike Gold- 
stein, Treasurer; and Karen 
Rose, secretary. 

SWAP, according to Web- 
ster, "is the only time when the 
students who make decisions 
can get together with the facul- 
ty and administration decision 

'There are no secretaries to 
hide behind" continues Web- 
ster, no defenses . . . the people 
who can refute your state- 
ments and argue your conclu- 
sions are right there!" 

Basically, this year's confer- 
ence will follow the pattern es- 
tablished by the seven previous 
conferences. Some changes for 
this year include an attempt 
to shift the balance of faculty- 
administration to include more 
faculty members. The reason 
for this shift, explains Webster, 
is that "the committee feels 
the administrative opinion is 
well known and it is important 
to take advantage of the new 
ideas brought to the campus by 
faculty members who have had 
experience at other schools 

where practices and opinions 
are different from those on the 
UMass campus." 

While the committee plans 
its basic program around pre- 
established questions or topics 
for discussion, the range that 
will be debated is unknown un- 
til the delegates actually begin 
exchanging ideas. 

The purpose of SWAP is not 
only to arrive at solutions for 
pre-determined problems but 
also through discussion and de- 
bate to bring new areas under 

One of the major unsched- 
uled results of last year's dis- 
cussions was the entire reform 
movement which swept the 
campus last year and resulted 
in major changes for curfews. 

The tentative schedule for 
SWAP 66 is:

The state House of Represent- 
atives this week overcame an 
earlier rejection and passed a 
bill to allow the University trus- 
tees to buy the building now used

purchase would be made on a $2 
million bond issue. 

The bill was passed, however, 
without the controversial section

The University now pays Am- 

herst $55,839 yearly in lieu of 
taxes on its Amherst buildings. 

This payment was the cause of 
rejection by a 108-84 vote on Ju- 
ly 27 by the House. The majority 
vote was less than the two-thirds 
needed on bond issues. The legis- 
lation now must go back to the 
Senate for approval. 

Solons have argued against the 
payment in lieu of taxes on the 
grounds that such a move would 

set a precedent for other state 
colleges and community colleges,

on Thursday, August 25. 

Two of the 22-story dormitories, one low-rise dormitory 
and the dining commons will be open for inspection from 
4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Guides will be available in all buildings, 
and light refreshments will be served in the dining com- 


Purpose of the open house is to give Amherst residents an 
opportunity to enjoy the spectacular view afforded by the 
five stately buildings that now dominate the Amherst sky- 
line. The five dormitories will be occupied by 2800 students 
in September. 

Those planning to attend the open house may be assured 
that elevators will be functioning in the high-rise buildings. 



National Magazine Charges UPenn 
With Govt. Chem. Warfare Research 

Ramparts Magazine today 
charged that an institute at the 
University of Pennsylvania is 
engaging in weapons research 
in the use of biological and 
chemical warfare that is direct- 
ly connected with the chemi- 
cal warfare program in Vietnam. 

The charges were leveled in 
an article in the August issue 
of the magazine, entitled "War 
Catalog of the University of 
Pennsylvania," which also ac- 
cused the University founded by 
Benjamin Franklin of running 
a school for spies in the guise 
of a course in political science. 

The article, written by Ram- 
parts Research Editor Sol Stern, 
describes the University's Insti- 
tute- for Cooperative Research, 
whose memben on campus are 
"popularly known as the 'Dach- 
au doctors'." 

It reports that "the Defense 
Department's Chemical Corps 

directs the Institute, along with 
other chores, to: 

"a) summarize the state of 
knowledge on biological and 
chemical weapons systems, both 
offensive and defensive, in terms 
of interest to decision makers 
and potential users . . ." 

In a study done for the In- 
stitute by another U. of P. di- 
vision, the Foreign Policy Re- 
search Institute, germ and 
chemical warfare is evaluated in 
terms of its effect upon the "po- 
tential role of such weapons in 
the strategies of the United 
States and its allies, and . . . 
how these weapons might lend 
greater flexibility to the mili- 
tary posture required for the 
support of United States foreign 

Organized in 1954, the Insti- 
tute for Cooperative Research 
"has been host to a wide spec- 
trum of classified defense pro- 
jects. Of these, the chemical-bi-

SSEC Meets with 

Fall Student Counterparts 

Sunday afternoon in the Sen- 
ate office of the Student Sen- 
officers of the Summer Student 
Executive Council met with 
their counterparts from the 
regular Fall Student Senate. 

Discussion centered around 
the relationship between the two 
governing bodies, and the differ- 
ent problems each necessarily 

The need for a summer gov- 
ernment was unanimously en- 
dorsed and agreement was 
reached for the permanent es- 
tablishment formalizing the 
SSEC by the Student Senate 
in the fall. 

Paul Schlosberg, President of 

the Summer Student Executive 
Council, noted that much of the 
work that the council is doing 
will be forwarded to the regular 
Student Senate in the form of 
recommendations and bills in 
the fall. 

John Greenquist, president of 
the Student Senate, enthusias- 
tically welcomed the tremendous 
contribution being made by the 
summer government — all present 
agreed that close cooperation in 
the future between the two gov- 
erning groups can only advance 
the aim of student government, 
which is to promote the welfare 
and fulfill the needs of the

THEATRE . . . 

(Continued from page 1) 
"Krapp's Last Tape," which I 
directed off-Broadway." 

"The only use I ever made of 
journalism was a poor public 
relations director for the Wash- 
ington Civic Theater in 1940," 
Schneider says. For a time, he 
was also an early-morning disc 
jockey on Radio Station WBAL 

Deciding the theater was win- 
ning out in spite of himself, he 
took his masters degree in it at 
Cornell in 1941. Schneider went 
to Catholic University in Wash- 
ington, D.C., to teach theatre in 
1941. He remained there until 
1952, with time out for service 
in the Office of War Information 
during World War II. "I handled 
their dramatic presentations, 
Jean Kerr their comedies." His 

first production was Saroyan's 
"Jim Dandy." 

At Catholic University, he pro- 
duced and acted in Eugene 
■O'Neill's "Ah, Wilderness!" In it, 
he was a 26 year old man playing 
a 12 year old boy. 

At Catholic University, he also 
played his first musical role. He 
has directed only one musical, 
"The Three Penny Opera" for 
Washington's Arena Stage in 
1963. He also appeared in "Saint 
Joan" with Luise Rainer. 

While with the Office of War 
Information in 1944, Schneider 
made a film to promote War 
Bond sales. Shot in Newport, R.I., 
it was the first picture directed 
by Richard Carlson. Schneider's 
only Broadway acting assignment 
was in"Storm Operation" follow- 
ing his hitch with the O. W. I.

In addition to rice-crop di- 
sease germs, "the directors of 
the Institute's operations 'Spice- 
rack' and 'Summit' have made 
it known that they are explor- 
ing the employment of real poi- 
sons, with special emphasis on 
the use of arsenics and cyanides 
in aerosol form," the article 
states. The campus student pub- 
lication is quoted as having re- 
ported that a Defense Depart- 
ment official (later privately 
identified as Undersecretary Cy- 
rus Vance) had told it that the 
U. S. "had resorted to a 'limit- 
ed use' of aerosol-sprayed ar- 
senic and cyanide compounds 
over the rice fields of South 

Ramparts quotes at length 
from the specifications of gov- 
ernment contracts and the belli- 
cose assignments they give the 
Institute, on behalf of the De- 
fense Department's Chemical 

It further strongly suggests 
that the research at Penn led 
the State Department last July 
to begin "to move toward a re- 
consideration of the official 
American policy which opposes 
the use of germ warfare." To- 
ward this end, there appeared 
a "memo advocating the surrep- 
tious use in Vietnam of tular- 
emia." The idea of spreading 
this disease, akin to bubonic 
plague, "was approved up to the 
assistant secretary level at the 
State Department." 

The magazine presents a well 
circumstatiatcd account of how 
news of this project "leaked" in 
Washington, creating a protest 
which led to shelving of "the 
plan to use tularemia plague 
and other germs in Vietnam." 
"The various memos advocating 
their use remain secret at the 
Defense Department and at 
State," it adds. 

"The Institute for Coopera- 
tive Research is preparing for 
future escalation of chemical- 
biological aspects of the war in 
Vietnam. Penn's scientists are 
presently at work, perfecting 
military uses for LSD-25, An- 
thrax and nerve gases." 

Despite threats by faculty 
members to resign, "the 'Dachau 

doctors' are staying." A new 1- 
year $900,000 contract has been 
approved. In announcing it, Dr. 
Knut Krieger, of the Institute's 
staff, said: "The emphasis of the 
studies, while originally very 
military in purpose, have become 
even more so." 

How the University of Penn- 
sylvania has accommodated it- 
self to such uses of its campus 
is explained by Ramparts as that 
"its connections are typical of 
the large university which has 
had to come to terms with an 
environment in which Cold War 
priorities sh«pe educational pol- 

"At Penn, the price of accom- 
modation has been high both in 
intellectual independence and 
academic integrity." 

Government grants provide 
the largest single source of the 
University's total income, Ram- 
parts says, adding, "Penn is not 
so much a university on the 
make as a university that has 
been had." 

Another instance in which 
the University "has been had," 
says Ramparts, is its Political 
Science 551, "a course for spies." 

Taught by Drs. George and 
Charlotte Dyer, this "is in re- 
ality a thinly disguised training 
course for future intelligence 
agents." The professors "an- 
nounce at the beginning of the 
semester that one out of ten 
who take the course will be re- 
cruited for the CIA." According 
to the official syllabus, it in- 
cludes field work in which 
"joint military-political maneu- 
vers are laid in any sort of avail- 
able terrain where unusually 
useful, and hopefully predictive 
lessons may be learned." 

Ramparts goes on: "The Dy- 
ers are not modest about the 
'predictive' power of their field 
exercises: 'A year ago we anti- 
cipated President Johnson's de- 
cision to obliterate once and for 
all the concept of a war of ag- 
gression against a neighboring 
state based on a privileged sanc- 
tuary. This was in Operation 
Ho!, held jointly with the Penn 

Then, there is the already- 
mentioned Foreign Policy Re- 
search Institute, the avowed 
aim of which is, in part, to 
"train research fellows for ser- 

vice in the research and analysis 
branches of U. S. foreign policy 
and national security agencies..." 

Headed by Professor Robert 
Strausz-Hupe, it began with a 
grant from "the head of the 
Vick's Chemical Corporation, to 
rub out communism." It shows 
a "grim, humorless reaction to 
every instance of naivete about 
the 'communist menace' "and 
"an almost filial affection" for 
the CIA, Stern says. Its maga- 
zine has "defended the CIA's 
use of universities as both legi- 
timate and desirable." 

Ramparts gives an exhaustive 
rundown of the Institute's ac- 
tivities and of its members' far 
right-wing bias. It quotes Sen. 
J. W. Ful bright: "The relation- 
ships between the Foreign Poli- 
cy Research Institute, the In- 
stitute for American Strategy, 
The Richardson Foundation, the 
National War College, and the 
Joint Chiefs of Staff, should be 
re-examined from the stand- 
point of whether these relation- 
ships do n o t amount to official 
support for a viewpoint at var- 
iance with that of the Adminis- 

The Institute's current re- 
search project for the Navy on 
guerrilla warfare is reported as 
so "hot" that "four of the five 
principal investigators hold top 
secret security clearances and 
even the administrators, research 
assistants and secretaries re- 
quire secret clearances." 

Ramparts concludes its re- 
port: "Like Political Science 551 
and the Institute for Coopera- 
tive Research, the work of the 
Foreign Policy Research Insti- 
tute might profitably be trans- 
ferred to the Defense Depart- 
ment. It certainly would save 
a lot of bookkeeping." 

"A creative balladeer, he a- 
mazes with his lightening quick 
wit and flawless improvising." 
This young folk singer with an 
unbelievable talent is Steve De 
Pass who will demonstrate his 
wit and ability to improvise in 
song for the U Mass campus 
Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. on the 
South Terrace of the Student 

Steve De Pass is a Modern 
Minstrel with an extraordinary 
gift for lyrical improvisation. He 
is a Tenor who can sing in a 
dozen languages; an entertainer 
whose appeal is universal to peo- 
ple of all ages and persons from 
every walk of life. He combines 
the highlights of entertainment, 
sophistication and good taste. 

His command performances 
have been hailed by Presidents 
Kennedy and Johnson and he is 
well known to nation-wide tele- 
vision viewers. 

De Pas, a graduate of New 
York University, has concertized 
and been enthusiastically ac- 

claimed in colleges from coast 
to coast; and at such world-re- 
nowned halls as Carnegie in New 
York, Symphony Hall in Boston, 
The Academy of Music in Phila- 
delphia and others too numerous 
to mention. 

His last minute replacement of 
Harry Belafonte at the Latin 
Casino earned for Steve not only 
a standing ovation, but a five 
year contract with that illus- 
trious club. 

His travels have taken him 
throughout the United States, 
Canada and South America. 

His ability to improvise lyrics 
on the spot, seemingly without 
effort, has earned him the raves 
of critics everywhere. 

He has been called a Rhymer, 
a Troubadour, a Balladeer, a 
Calypso Singer, sometimes even 
a Commedian or Folksinger. But 
none of these labels are quite 
accurate. He may be all of these. 
But he is one of the most gentle 
and dynamic entertainers whom 
you must see.

Yahoo Resurrected 

Editor Jones Plans 
For 1966-67 Yahoos 

By ERIC WISH, Summer Editor 

"We plan to publish three issues next year one way or 
another," was the reply made by Roger Jones, Editor-in- 
Chief of Yahoo, when asked about future editions of Yahoo 

Last May, the student senate in the Fall." 

budget was sent to Dean Field 
for approval, who recommended 
to President Lederle that the 
Yahoo budget bo eliminated. This 
would have the effect of pre- 
venting future publications. 

When asked about the possi- 
bility of private student finan- 
cing of future Yahoos, the editor, 
on a 2-day visit, mentioned that 
the idea had not occurred to him. 

Jones plans to retain his po- 
sition of Editor-in-Chief next 
year. The positions of Business 
Manager, Art Editor, and Lit- 
erary Editor are presently un- 

Jones declined to elaborate 
on any organized method of ed- 
itor selection. Elections proce- 
dure is a mandatory part of 
the constitution of every regis- 
tered student organization. 

Jones stated that he has 
"several constitutions floating 
around" but that he does not 
know which one appli°s be- 
cause of the failure of the Stu- 
dent Senate to act on them. 

He was reluctant to discuss 
future changes in the person- 
nel and the structure of the 
magazine. His most frequent 
response to such questions 
was, "Let's see what happens 

Cheating Rocks 
Ohio Campus 

COLUMBUS, Ohio— The worst 
exam cheating scandal in the 
school's history broke open at 
Ohio State University in July. 
Ten students were expelled and 
29 were suspended. 

Executive Dean John T. Bon- 
ner said the students obtained a 
freshman math final by bribing 
a janitor to unlock a cabinet 
two nights before the exam was 
given. Faculty members learned 
of the incident and changed the 

The dean said the incident was 
confined to the math department 
and was not part of a larger 
cheating operation. Ohio State 
has an enrollment of 32,000. 

The janitor, who has been 
fired, said he was promised $100 
but got only $43. 

Jones has not polled student 
opinion concerning Yahoo. "It's 
impossible to please everyone," 
he said. "We try to round it 
out," he added. 

In Jones' opinion, the pur- 
pose of a campus humor mag- 
azine is to entertain and edu- 
cate through student participa- 

Concerning the student-fac- 
ulty publication board which 
has been investigating student 
publications this Summer 
Jones concluded: 

"I hope the publication 
board meetings will promote 
coordination between student 
publications, the student body, 
senate, faculty, and adminis- 
tration. In the past it has been 
sadly lacking with a minimum 
amount of constructive criti- 
cism ana* too many individuals 
with negativistic attitudes 
causing needless debates at 
needless times. The only re- 
medy is for everybody to pitch

Restore Privacy to Federal Figures 

By Eric Wish 
Summer Editor 

It has been a long estab- 
lished custom of the Ameri- 
can people to inquire into 
and publicize the private 
lives of government people. 

The extensive and overly 
precise news coverage of the 
recent marriage of the Pres- 
ident's daughter is evidence 
of the inescapable micro- 
scopic examination to which 

the lives of federal people 
are subjected. 

Recently the front page 
of a local newspaper was 
dominated by an article 
describing a book soon to be 
published in which a scandal 
concerning President Fi 1 D. 
Roosevelt and his wife's so- 
cial secretary was disclosed. 
This event supposedly oc- 
curred in 191."). 

How long must our states- 

men be made to endure such 
intrusions? In Russia it is 
customary for the private 
lives of government officials 
to remain private. 

We believe that the Amer- 
ican people will not be de- 
prived of their right to a 
knowledge of their govern- 
ment by a lack of knowledge 
of the governors. Let us re- 
store privacy to those who 
desire it. 

Blindness Imposes Segregation on Author 

- Correction - 

Results of the referendum 
on the SSEC constitution 
should have been reported 
as 254 total votes with 182 
for acceptance and 72 op- 
posed. Seven-tenths of the 
student voters were in favor 
of the constitution although 
all the voting students, 254, 
represented only a fraction 
of the eligible 1606 under- 

"To Catch An Angel" by Robert Russell 
(Popular Library; Sept. 15; 60 cents) is described 
by the author as "segregation in miniature." He 
is blind. 

He says: "At six my injury segregated me 
into a 'separate, but equal ?' school where 1 
learned to feel all the angers, the loneliness, and 
the desperate insecurities of the one who has 
been cast out by society. The fence surrounding 
the school was the steel shadow of society's 
conviction that I was odd, peculiar — that I did 

NOT belong In reaction, I turned from this 

fact to build my life with my schoolmates whom 
blindness had equally isolated, and It was a life 
of great pleasure, great fun and great adventure. 

Even at its most thrilling, though, this was 
not the real world; and I could no more rest 

content in it than the Negro can in a completely 
Negro community. Integration was and still is 
the task for me, and this book is my struggle 
to bring it to pass. 

In short, blindness did to me what a Negro's 
color does to him. No struggle is without Its 
humor and absurdities, and I hope the book 
communicates mine." 

Robert Russell is head of the English de- 
partment at Franklin and Marshall College in

UMass for 
Bargaining Agent 

The Massachusetts State Em- 
ployees Association has peti- 
tioned the University of Massa- 
chusetts to hold a collective 
bargaining election in October 
among the non - professional 
employees of the University to 
select an exclusive bargaining 
agent for these employees. 

This election shall be conduc- 
ted in accordance with the pro- 
visions of the 1964 statute and 
the collective bargaining rules 
and regulations promulgated 
by Director of Personnel, Leon- 
ard A. Kelley, and approved by 
Commissioner of Administra- 
tion, John J. McCarthy. 

In 1964 the Massachusetts 
Legislature passed a statute 
giving collective bargaining 
rights to employees of the 
Commonwealth of Massachu- 

The University of Massachu- 
setts autonomy statute — Chap- 
ter 75, Section 14 — provides 
that employees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts "shall 
have the same privileges and 
benefits of other employees of 
the Commonwealth. 

The petition to Dr. John W. 
Lederle, UMass president, was 
signed by Mark Dalton, legis- 
lative agent and counsel; Al- 
bert Lamson, UMass MSEA ex- 
ecutive officer and William P. 
Gurski, UMass MSEA rep.

July 18, 1966 
Mr. John Lederle, Pres. 
University of Massachusetts 
Amherst, Massachusetts 
Dear Mr. Lederle: 

I have recently been informed 
that registration for the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts will take 
place this year on "September 
14th and the first day of school 
will be the 15th. 

The 15th and 16th of Septem- 
ber are among the holiest in the 
Jewish calendar Rosh Hashan- 
ah or the New Year. Attendance 
at services and absence from 
classes are mandatory for Jew- 
ish students. In view of this fact, 
and the further fact that some 
1,500 Jewish students are in at- 
tendance at the University of 
Massachusetts I am shocked to 
learn of the unfair burden which 
will be placed upon the conscien- 
ces of these students who will be 
struggling between the necessity 
of attending the first day of 
school, with all that that entails, 
and their religious obligations. 

It is inadequate to explain that 
these students will not be pena- 
lized for not attending classes, 
since the pressure of attendance 
is so great that such rules will 
undoubtedly be offset. Should 
Easter or Christmas fall on week 
days it would be comparable to 
commencing the school year on 
these days. 

Apart from my personal paro- 
chial concern as a rabbi, 1 must 
tell you that as chairman of the 
Springfield Human Relations 
Commission such university ac- 
tion ignores the sensitivity and 
religious beliefs of a large seg- 
ment of the student population 
and is not in keeping with our 
country's concern for the various 
faiths of its people. 

Looking forward to an answer 
from you, I am 

Sincerely yours, 

Rabbi Samuel H. Dresner

Office of the President 
University of Massachusetts 
Amherst, Mass. 
Dear Rabbi Dresner: 

Thank you for your interest in 
students at the University of 
Massachusetts. We are, of course, 
sorry that our academic calendar 
appears to cause some difficulty 
to our Jewish students. As I 
think vou know, calendaring for 
(he a ca de mk year 1966-67 was 
adopted by the Faculty Senate 
on January 7, 1965. 

The Faculty Senate has a 
standing rule that each semester 
include a minimum of 84 aca- 
demic days Also, from experi- 
ence, the University has tried to 
avoid registration on Mondays, 
which dictated that registration 
for the fall semester should be 
Tuesday. Wednesday, or Thurs- 
day in September. We have an 
active Hillel Foundation group 
and do attempt to avoid calen- 
daring difficulties and conflicts 
so far as possible While I was 
not a party to the detailed dis- 
cussions, I suspect that rather 

than postpone the beginning of 
the semester to the following 
week it was decided to adopt the 
dates we have selected, realizing 
that students of Jewish faith can 
attend religious services in Am- 
herst. In addition, when religious 
holidays conflict with classes, at 
the request of the Provost's Of- 
fice, professors are asked to give 
every consideration to students 
who must necessarily be adsent 
from class so that they may be 
able to make up the work they 
have missed. The Provost's Of- 
fice will make such a request in 
connection with work missed on 
September 15th and 16th. 

I regret the conflict. I assure 
you that we try to avoid such dif- 
ficulties. We have a similar kind 
of problem on Good Friday when 
classes are in session, but when 
professors are urged to give ev- 
ery consideration to students who 
are necessarily absent because 
of their religious faith. 

I appreciate your calling this 
matter to my attention. We shall 
continue to keep this particular 
kind of problem in the forefront 
as we discuss future University- 
year calendars. 

Cordially yours, 

John W. Lederle

Dear Mr. Lederle: 

Thank you for your letter of 
July 20th. My absence from the 
city prevented me from replying 
to you until now. 

I cpn appreciate the problems 
involved in meeting the mini- 
mum requirement of academic 
days in establishing a calendar. 
Undoubtedly many factors must 
be weighed in arriving at a suit- 
able date. What appears disturb- 
ing is that the religious require- 
ments of fifteen hundred stu- 
dents of the university was not a 
sufficiently significant factor 
when the final determination of 
a date was made. 

Two points in your letter must 
be amended. First, there are no 
facilities for Jewish religious ser- 
vices in Amherst for fifteen hun- 
dred students. Second, Good Fri- 
day does not have the same place 
in the Christian calendar as Rosh 
Hashanah and Yom Kippur do in 
the Jewish calendar. Only Easter 
and Christmas are in any way 
comparable in significance. And 
of course on these days the Uni- 
versity is closed. 

I am sure that you are aware 
of the emphasis laid upon fam- 
ily life within the Jewish religion, 
as well as the challenges that are 
shaking the foundations of faith 
among college students in gen- 
eral. To take fifteen hundred 
Jewish students away from their 
homes and their synagogues and 
their families and place them in 
the University atmosphere, 
where registration and the first 
day of classes is taking place, is 
to strike a severe blow at the 
moral and spiritual foundations 
of these students and of one of 
the three major religions in this 
country. Universities throughout 

the country with large Jewish 
student populations have made 
every effort not to create such 
dilemmas, and as you know, in 
some public schools in heavily 
populated Jewish sections, the 
entire schools are closed because 
of the large number of faculty 
and students who are Jewish. 

In view of the above, and 
knowing of your sincere desire 
to enable all of the students to 
be nourished by their religious 
tradition. I would like to make 
the following suggestions to you. 

1. Announce to the Jewish 
students by letter that in view 
of Rosh Hashanah falling on the 
15th and 16th of September, a 
special registration day of Mon- 
day, September 19th will be 
made available for them and 
that they will be excused the 
previous week. 

2. If (1) is not feasible, an- 
nounce to the Jewish students by 
letter that while they must reg- 
ister on September 14th, they 
will not be in any way penalized 
for absence from classes the 15th 
and 16th, when they may return 
home to their families. This at 
least will permit those who live 
within a short distance to be at 
home for those days. 

3. Announce to the Jewish stu- 
dents by letter that every effort 
will be made to avoid such con- 
flict in the future. 

I believe that unless a public 
statement is made by the Uni-

SSEC Makes Political Error 


This is an editorial. A few 
days ago members of the Exec 
Council objected to the quoting 
of the material below. In tech- 
nical terms, the speaker was 
not permitted to read because 
there was objection expressed. 

If the question had not been 
raised, the passages could have 
been quoted. 

What Marshall Nadan includ- 
ed in his planned "democracy 
lecture" certainly should be 
considered with last week's ac- 
tivities, all of them, in mind. 
The committee to defeat the 
constitution itself was not a 
paragon of intelligent political 

But the point that is trying 
to come forth here is that the 
Council made a political mis- 
take in its method of silencing 
Nadan. Clearly, the majority 

went on record again defending 
the referendum and how it was 

This is the prerogative of the 
majority and, in fact, its duty 
to promote the majority opinion. 

But these thoughts below in 
a truly free legislative atmos- 
phere hardly constituted such a 
"slap in the face" as angry 
Councilors indicated. 

It would have been better, 
may I understate, had the pas- 
sages been heard and the ref- 
erendum conduct then defended. 
It would not have taken up too 
much Council time. What else 
is the Council deliberating for — 
that such reading could not 
have contributed?

ly appearing in Antioch Review,

UMass Faculty Members 
Assigned New Positions 

Two more University of Mas- 
sachusetts faculty members have 
been assigned to posts at the 
new agricultural college of the 
University of Malawi in Africa, 
it was announced today by Dean 
Arless A. Spielman of the U- 
Mass College of Agriculture. 

Dr. Emmett Bennett, research 
professor of biochemistry in the 
department of forestry and wild- 
life management, will develop 
courses in agricultural chemistry 
at the new university. Evengel 
Bredakis, research instructor of 
plant and soil sciences, will teach 
entomology, botany and zoology. 
Both appointments are for two 

UMass is now in the third year 
of an agricultural development 
program at the new East Afri- 
can nation under a U. S. Agen- 
cy for International Develop- 
ment contract. The University 
trains Malawi agriculturalists at 
its Amherst campus, has a three- 
man team working on an exten- 
sion and farm credit system in 
Malawi, and last May assigned 
Dr. Constantine J. Gilgut, vet- 
eran UMass extension profes- 
sor and plant pathologist, to di- 

rect development of the new 
Malawi agricultural college. 

Dr. Bennett, a specialist in 
wood chemistry and biocelloids, 
has been a UMass staff member 
since 1930. His B.S. degree is 
from Ohio State University, his 
M.S. from UMass and his Ph-D. 
from Pennsylvania State Univ. 

He has published articles on a 
variety of topics in agricultural

TARY FACT about politics 
which is not well understood. 
It is this: that conflict here is 
the normal, not the abnormal, 

"... in politics the strife 
which prevails is normally be- 
tween honest men. Honesty, we 
seem to think, ought to beget 
amity; and amity, we surely be- 
lieve, ought to cure strife . . . 
Dishonest men you can scare 
into acquiescence; not so the 
honest opposites . . . This is 
what makes politics so diffi- 
cult . . . 

"With so much plainly before 
us, let us repair now to the 
place prepared for such a con- 
flict, to the legislative assembly 
. . . You will expect it to be a 
noisy place, for there honest 
men will at first stand aghast 
at the audacity of other men 
who claim to be equally hon- 
est ... It is, in the Anglo-Sax- 
on tradition, not as noisy a 
place, however, as you might 
well expect . . . 

"Do you not notice how cour- 
teous the interruptions? Do you 
not notice that they go by pro- 
tocol through the Speaker, that 
the interruptions are ended in 
courtliness and received with 
grace . . . 

Took closer still and you will 
isolate two elements in that im- 
pressive view: one, the individ- 
ual component; the other, the 
traditional factor. Individually, 
the representatives are for the 
most part treating each other 
with respect, even with defer- 
ence . . . 

'The rationale reaches into 
the traditional for its main sup- 
port. Parliamentary usages are 
what makes meetings possible 
from what would otherwise be 
mobs. Rules of Order are lit- 
erally what gives order to any 
and every effort to pool human 
insight, to each endeavor to 
compose adult differences . . . 

"Those who have not learned 
that tradition is the backbone 
of all effective individualism are 
no good at the democratic pro- 
cess. This respect for procedur- 
al authority makes operative in 
each representative the great 
principle of liberty under law."

Dorm Complex Named 
^Presidential Towers' 

The University of Massachu- 
setts Board of Trustees has 
voted to name five new 22- 
story dormitories that will 
open this fall for 2800 students 
for five Presidents of the Unit- 
ed States. 

Known as the Presidential 
Towers, the dormitories are the 
tallest buildings west of Bos- 
ton, and will be named for four 
Presidents who went to the 
White House from Massachu- 
setts— -John Adams, John Quin- 
cy Adams, Calvin Coolidge and 
John F. Kennedy, and for 
George Washington. 

Each of the 22-story dormi- 
tories has three separate units 
within it, including six floors 
of 32 students each, a recrea- 
tion area, library, faculty resi- 
dent quarters, and the main 
lobby. University officials are 
confident that the careful 
planning that went into design 
of the structures wiH provide 
for a superior residential col- 
lege program in which students 
and resident faculty can work 
closely together. 

The Board of Trustees also 
named four low-rise dormito- 
ries, to be completed next sum- 
mer, for four distinguished fac- 
ulty members who are deceas- 
ed. They are Charles Henry 
Patterson, who served various- 
ly as professor of English, 
dean of the College and head of 
the department of language 
and literature between 1916- 
1933; Alexander A. Mackimmie, 
professor of history, head of 
the department of sociology 
and dean of the School of Lib- 
eral Arts between 1908 and 
1949; Walter E. Prince, profes- 
sor of English from 1912 to 
1950; and Guy C. Crampton, 
professor of entomology be- 
tween 1911 and 1948. 

The University in coopera- 
tion with the Amherst Cham- 
ber of Commerce will sponsor 
an open house in two of the 
22-story dormitories, one low- 
rise dormitory and a dining 
commons for the Amherst 
community on Thursday, Aug- 
ust 25 between 4:30 and 8:30 

p.m. Guides will be available to 
take townspeople through the 
buildings, and light refresh- 
ments will be served in the din- 
ing commons. 

The new names of the high 
and low rise buildings will take 
the place of the current letter 
designations as follows: Tl — 
John F. Kennedy; T2 — Calvin 
Coolidge; T4 — John Quincy 
Adams; T5 — John Adams, 
and T6 — George Washington; 
in the low-rise dormitories, J 
becomes Charles H. Patterson; 
K — Alexander A. Mackimmie; 
L — Guy C. Crampton; and M 
—Walter E. Prince. 

The dormitories are built by 
the UMass Building Authority, 
and are paid for on a self-liqui- 
dating basis at no cost to the 
taxpayer. Architect for the dor- 
mitories in the Southwest area 
is Hugh Stubbins of Cam- 
bridge. The prime contractor is

"Democratic" Squabble Highlights SSEC Meeting 

Las Vegas Nite-Pg. 2-3 

Intramural All-Stars— Pg .4 


Summer Reporter 

Pleasantly non-conforming to 
past performance, most of the 
business of last Wednesday's 
Summer Student Executive 
Council meeting appeared on its 

As expected the Council ac- 
cepted the results of the refer- 
endum held last week in which 
the student body gave its ap- 
proval to the summer govern- 
ment plan. The constitution is 
now in effect. But an attempted 
lecture on democracy by Mar- 
shall Nadan, one of the spon- 
sors of the motion to formally 
accept the referendum, was vir- 
tually ignored. 

The lesson Nadan attempted 
to get across fell on a largely un- 
interested Council. The premises 
for the speech were the charges 
made last week that the then- 
proposed constitution was care- 
lessly typed for distribution to 
the students and that the copies 
were not ready in sufficient 

In addition, Nadan in an ob- 
vious manner criticized the re- 
ferendum campaign for the con- 
stitution (which he was then op- 
posing) previously described by 
him as "marred by the actions 
of a few individuals." 

SPEAKING to the Council ap- 
parently still alienated by the 
week's activities, Nadan made 
reference to the principles fought 
for in 1776, in the war between 
the states, and in both world 
wars. "Perhaps the cornerstone 
of democracy is freedom of 
speech," the representative de- 
clared, keeping on his "high" 


An objection made by Coun- 
cilor Hank Hirschel and sup- 
ported by Elaine Bell 'ruled out 
of order Nadan's attempt to 
quote material from published 
sources. In favor of allowing the 

reading was Frank Verock. The 
intended five minutes of read- 
ing at this point, paraphrased in- 
stead, described democracy in a 
way that the Brett Councilor in- 
dicated the University had not 
experienced a week ago Thurs- 
day. (See editorial.) 

FINALLY, the Council ma- 
jority cut off debate on the 
grounds, expressed by the Par- 
liamentarian, that it was "not 
germane" to the motion on the 

Again the Council heard no 
negative votes as it formally ac- 
cepted the previously unani- 
mously-approved proposed con- 

"I regret to announce the re- 
signation of (Sumner) 'Skip' 
Davis," President Paul Schlos- 
berg told the session at its tardy 
outset. No reasons for Davis' 
withdrawal were given. A mem- 
ber of the class of 1968, the 
Councilor had headed the Fi- 
nance Committee. 

(Treasurer Ann McGunigle was 
named to fill that vacancy.) 

According to the newly - ad - 
opted constitution, all vacancies 
in the SSEC "shall be filled 
within one week after the va- 
cancy occurs (by special elec- 
tion), except in cases when less 
than two weeks remain in the 
summer session." Schlosberg 
gave no indication that a spe- 
cial election would be held. So 
far the student government has 
conducted three such special el- 
ections since the original one. 

By the next meeting, only nine 
days will remain in the summer 

In other reports, Dave O'Con- 
nor complained about the mem- 
bers' lack of participation in his 
Student Services Committee. Re- 
ferring to its highly - praised 
accomplishments, he expressed 

the guess that there's some lack 
of interest in how much more 
is achieved. 

PROBABLE discontinuation of 
the library hours extension form- 
ed the bulk of that chairman's 
remarks. The marked increase 
in libe use, hoped for, has not 
come about said O'Connor. On 
the average only about thirty- 
five student use the study area 
between nine and eleven, the 
Council was informed. 


Asking that a committee be 
named to seek Board of Trus- 
tees and Student Senate endorse- 
ment of the constitution (and 
hence the Council), a motion of- 
fered by Joe Ross was approved. 
Verock, like Ross a Student 
Senator, incorporated in the pro- 
vision that it pass on to the 
proper persons Council recom- 

Verock referred especially to 
such Council resolution-motions 
as those passed that evening: one 
unanimously calling for sum - 
mer curfews to be the same as 
those during the regular year 
and another requesting that sum- 
mer residence halls be governed 
by elected house councils in 1967. 

from Jackie Somma that pro- 
posals relating to swing - shift 
freshmen should originate from 
such a "recommendations" com- 
mittee drew doubts from Verock. 

Favoring a broad mandate for 
a committee, the organizer of 
the 1966 summer government, 
Lew Gurwitz, asserted that a 
committee so constituted might 
insure Council perpetual teat ion 
and enforce its validity.. 

WHAT the body passed was a 
three-member committee (Ver- 
ock, O'Connor, and Vice-Pres - 
ident John Lannon were appoint- 
ed) charged with furthering the 
constitution and motions re- 
quiring follow-up action. Hinted 
at in the debate is an extension 

of this summer's government in 
an advisory capacity, promot- 
ing a 1967 Exec Council and 
speaking as a recognized body 
on questions pertaining to the 

Chairman of the new group 
Verock, called for a hearing on 
Monday, August 22, between 
2:30 and 5 p.m. Hoping to draw- 
ideas which might result in re- 
commendations, this summer s 
student body was thus invited 
to speak. 


Definite plans for an all-star 
softball game with a team drawn 
from the intermural league and 
one made up of students of a 
Mississippi college were not an- 
nounced to the Council. Work- 
ing on the idea, Joe Doucette 
reported his difficulties in win- 
ning a $35 contribution from 
Brett House. 

In other athletic notes, free- 
swim hours were announced as 

being changed to five through 
seven in the evening, Monday 
through Saturday, starting the 
22nd. Schlosberg told the Coun- 
cil that a pool poll indicated the 
earlier hours preference. (When 
proposing the first hour change 
the Services Committee had not 
taken a survey as such.) Rea- 
sons for the unanticipated new- 
hours disenchantment including 
recent weather and the fact that 
intermural participants could not 
swim while playing or prac*ir 
ing had been cited. 

An amendment to the consti- 
tution's most controversial sec- 
tion, the judiciary, was present- 
ed land automatically tabled as 
all constitutional amendments 
must be) by Councilors Somma 
and Nadan. A related motion de- 
tailing summer standards boards, 
which the Council has not yet 
touched upon, will be brought 
up then also.

VOL. n NO. 20 




S. U. Asst Director 
Opposes Censorship 


"A college newspaper has a 
duty to report the truth, whe- 
ther good, bad or indifferent, 
as long as it is backed by 

So states Harold W. Watts, 
assistant coordinator of stu- 
dent activities and assistant di- 
rector of the Student Union. 
He further believes that, to be 
able to report the truth, a col- 
lege paper needs freedom, but 
only as much as can be exer- 
cised with moral responsibility. 

"I'm not for censorship by 
the college, as such," Watts 
adds, "but everyone has his 
own moral censorship. A col- 
lege newspaper should practice 
this self-censorship and be re- 
sponsible, especially with re- 
gards to good taste and the 

Smiling behind black-rimmed 
glasses, this dark - haired ad- 
ministrator affirms the need 
for an adviser to complement 
self-censorship. However, the 
adviser himself should not cen- 
sor, only offer advice, he 
stressed. In Watt's opinion, the 
best man for the job would be 
one who has had experience in 
publishing a paper. 

A college paper has the duty 
of normal reporting and the 
function of a writing labora- 
tory, according to Watts. Be- 
yond this, he said, it is a "mir- 
ror of the campus." 

As such, Watts questions the 
need for the Collegian to cover 
Issues outside the college com- 
munity. "As I look down into 
the Student Union lobby, I see 
12 commercial newspapers 
which cover these issues ade- 
quately. I think a college paper 
should report only Issues which 
affect the students, such as the 
draft and civil rights," Watts 

The duties of this busy exec- 
utive range from assigning 
rooms in the Student Union for 
special affairs to arranging 
seats for graduation. As such, 

Watts is aware of many of the 
issues and upcoming events on 

"In fact, I have sat down 
with some Collegian reporters 
and asked if they know about 
this, this and this— and they 
didn't. It just takes a lot of 
digging to get all the issues 
and all the facts," Watts com- 

"I believe very much in free- 
dom of the student press," he 
continued. "This includes a be- 
lief that the college newspaper, 
such as the Collegian, should 
represent the student body." 

Watts, who maintains an 
open door for students and 
their problems, believes the 
Collegian offers one of the few 
opportunities the student body 
has to voice its opinions. "The 
faculty and administration look 
to the Collegian as a barometer 
of student feelings," he said. 

Because of this, "a well- 
written college newspaper can 
apply pressure to the faculty 
and administration, as long as 
it is well-written and responsi- 
ble," Watts stated.

Federal 'Upward-Bound' Program Stresses 
Educational Enrichment and Motivation 

A concentrated dose of educational enrichment — the 
best the University of Massachusetts School of Education 
can produce— is being given this summer to 100 selected 
Upward Bound students from 18 Western Massachusetts 
high schools. 

Upward Bound is a federal 
antipoverty program designed to 
help young people who have po- 
tential but not the expectation of 
attending college. It Is being car- 
ried out in a variety of ways at 
approximately 200 U.S. colleges 
and universities; at UMass it Is 
designed for ninth and tenth 
graders. The emphasis, according 

International Pianist 
In Concert Performance 

Howard Lebow, concert pianist 
and University of Massachusetts 
assistant professor of music, will 
present the final concert of the 
UMass Summer Arts Program 
Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 8 p.m. in 
Bowker Auditorium. 

Prof. Lebow won the Morris 
Loeb Memorial Prize, highest 
piano award the Juilliard School 
gives, as a student there. He 
holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from 
Juilliard and has also studied at 
the State Academy of Music in 
Hamburg, Germany, the Inter- 
national Institute for New Mu- 
sic In Darmstadt, Germany, and 
the Moxartem Summer Academy 
in Saltaburg, Austria. 

He was hailed as a "re.nark- 
able pianist" with a "technique 
both prodigious and refined" by 
the New York Times at the time 
of his New York debut in 1963. 

Since then he has appeared in 
concerts in 15 countries in Eur- 
ope and North, Central and 
South America, composed music 
for piano, lectured in Europe and 

South America for the U. S. 
Information Service, and appear- 
ed as guest lecturer at American 

Prof. Lebow will open bis con- 
cert with "Three Protests (C. 
1914)," which he edited from a 
manuscript of Charles Ives. The 
first half of the concert will also 
Include "Birthday Piece" by 
Ralph Shapey and Schubert's 
Sonata In A Minor, D. 845.

to director James S. White, can 
be summed up hi one word — 

White said: "Our main thrust 
is motivation and raising aspira- 
tions. We're trying to build in 
the students a constructive atti- 
tude toward learning, school and 

The UMass project leans heav- 
ily on counseling to accomplish 
these aims, White added. "Small 
group counseling is one of our 
key educational techniques. 
Through it we find we are reach- 
ing the kind of kids who are 
usually unreachable." 

The small group sessions In- 
clude ten students and one pro- 
fessional counselor. They shut 
themselves up In a dormitory 
lounge for SO minutes "of Just 
talking out their problems," 
White said. "They talk about 
everything — family problems, 
home problems, school problems, 
national problems." 

Ideas expressed in the coun- 
seling sessions must stay within 
the group; neither the counselor 
nor the group members can dis- 
cuss them with outsiders. This 
gives group members a sense of 
freedom in their discussions and 
helps them to talk about their 
problems, White explained. 

Three full - tune professional 
counselors carry on this small - 
group counseling program on a 
dally schedule; backing up this 
effort Is the work of another 
counseling group — 12 resident 
counselors or Upward Bound as- 
sistants. These are graduate stu- 
dents hi education, most of them 

from UMass, who live hi the 
dormitories with the students, 
share their meals, take part In 
their sports, attend classes with 
them and participate In their 
extracurricular activities. 

These Upward Bound assist- 
ants also give individual tutorial 
help in specific areas where it is 
needed. They have proven very 
effective in both counseling and 
tutoring, White said. 

Classroom activity at Upward 
Bound stresses discussion rather 
than lecturing. The subject mat- 
ter whenever possible is related 
to current problems. Many of the 
students have first-hand know- 
ledge of discrimination, economic 
need and other social issues; the 
fact that they encounter these 
same issues in the classroom 
helps them to relate the world of 
the classroom to their own lives, 
according to White. 

A staff of 12 teachers works 
with small classes — usually from 
six to ten — at Marks Meadow 
School. The three academic areas 
are English, math - science and 
social studies. 

A typical Upward Bound class 
mixes casual discipline and seri- 
ous discussion. Students In jeans 
and Bermudas sprawl around the 
Instructor teenage-style — some 
In chairs, some stretched out on 
desk tops and some on the floor. 
The give-and-take discussions be- 
tween Instructors and students 
may run from the Vietnam war 
to the U.S. balance of payments 
problem to the culture of teen- 
age gangs. 

The students react favorably 
to the freedom. A girl student 
from Springfield had this to say 
about the Upward Bound classes: 
"The main thing here is they 
- don't holler at you. You get a 
chance to talk and a chance to 
argue back if you want to." An- 

other student commented: "Back 
in my school if I was asked a 
question and I thought I knew 
the answer I was afraid to give 
it. Here they help you answer." 
Cultural and recreational acti- 
vities include an Upward Bound 
newspaper named What Now ?, 
art instruction, a drama club, 
and athletics. The group sam- 
ples the culture of the state and 
area via trips to museums, parks, 
theatres and concerts. 

The students themselves are 
the main disciplinary force, ac- 
cording to the director. They 
created their own student coun- 
cil, set curfews, study hours and 
other rules, and established a 
system of fines for violators. 

The eight-week summer phase 
of the program will close Aug. 
27. An equally important follow- 
up phase will then begin and be 
carried out through the school 
year. UMass will assign a coun- 
selor to each of the 10 partici- 
pating school systems; each stu- 
dent will be visited at least once 
each week. 

According to White, the sum- 
mer program appears to bave 
been extremely successful In Its 
alms. "Already they're beginning 
to look Into the possibility of be- 
ing college students," he said. 
He hopes not only to sustain this 
attitude through the coming year 
but through the follow-up pro- 
gram to relate It to the realities 
of the student's school and home 

The UMass Upward Bound di- 
rector is optimistic about the 
results, so much so that he be- 
lieves that the influence of Up- 
ward Bound will not stop with 
the 100 students accepted into 
the project but will rub off on 
other students from the same 
background with similar prob- 





Editor of Trench Review' 
Sees Magazine as Vital 

Says F. R. Is One of a Kind 


Don't be fooled. Behind that 
steel gray moustache and dark 
rimmed glasses is a vibrant in- 
dividuail with degrees in two 
fields and interests in many 

Dr. Seymour Weiner, associ- 
ate head in French and princi- 
pal French adviser, holds a doc- 
torate in French and a master's 
in library science. 

Even at first glance his of- 
fice reflects his orderly and ex- 
act interests. Off the beaten 
path of most of his French ma- 
jors, the small and compact 
two-desk room has mint green 
walls and a tiled floor. The 
large oblong desks stand side 
by side, one for the doctor and 
the other for his personal sec- 
retary, who also calls this al- 
cove at 24C Bartlett home. 

Two large maps of France 
decorate the wall above his 
desk and above his bookcase. 
The five-shelved case is packed 
tight with a variety of books 
from French literature to bibli- 
ographical research. A wooden 
coat rack stands unobtrusively 
in the corner, laden with a 
gray checked winter coat, a 
green plaid scarf and a dark 
felt hat. Dr. Weiner displays 
an interesting array of papers, 
books and annotated articles. 
A black telephone is near his 
left hand for easy reach. 

Dr. Weiner is also managing 
editor of the French Review, a 
scholarly work published six 
times a year, and he is writing 
a book. Other projects Include 
an interest in bibliographical 
research and work scholarship 

A tall, lanky man, he resem- 
bles more an old movie type 
with nearly gray wavy hair 
and moustache, peaceful brown 
eyes and a face etched with 
thin lines around a firm mouth 
and a rounded jaw. Crossing 
his legs and fingering a light 
tie, he surveyed the room and 
volunteered that the ideal of- 
fice contains a blackboard, al- 
though "rarely anywhere in 
the country will you find one." 
He spoke mainly on his "pet" 
activity— the French Review. 
Because of his extreme interest 
in book production, he was in- 
terviewed by the executive 
council of the magazine 
around November, 1964. His 
fulltime duties began last July. 
With a flourish of his thin left 
hand, Dr. Weiner explained, 
"This (French Review) does 
not belong to any specific uni- 

Published by the Waverly 
Press, approximately 13,500 
copies per issue, the Review 
has scholarly writings, pedalo- 
gical works, teaching materials 
and philosophies of language 
experts. "The French Review 
is something used by special- 
ists. It represents the spectrum 
of French interest in this coun- 
try. For teachers, it's the only 
source of information for new 
books," he said. 

With two library degrees and 
membership in the American 
Library Association, Dr. Wei- 
ner has managed to fuse his in- 
terests into an orderly pattern. 
"I feel being a teacher allows 
me to use my interest in li- 
brary science even more than 
if I were in the library field," 
he explains. At UMass, he is

Tickets are on sale at the U-

this particular interest into his 
relationships with his work 
scholarship students, who often 
do bibliographical research for 
him. He views the library fa- 
cilities as an "opportunity for 
them to develop certain skills." 
In the beginning stages off 
writing a book, he comments, 
"I want to write a book on the 
career and the importance off 
Jacques Bernard, poet and cri- 
tic who died in the 1st World 
War. His writings "reflect the 
aesthetic resolutions of some of 
the great writers in the early 
20th Century.'* Taking off his 
glasses to peer at the research 
books in the bookshelf behind 
him, he admits that research 
for the book is "fairly difficult 
— because there are many un- 
knowns. For every big name 
there are thousands of others.'' 
He is also on the Freybourg 
"planning" committee for At- 
lantic studies. This exciting 
study abroad program has just 
been approved by the Univer- 
sity as a year-long accredited 
program of study in Germany. 
A group of Freybourg, Ger- 
many, instructors and a group 
of University instructors were 

"given the responsibility of 
forming programs and of se- 
lecting a group of proper stu- 
dents." He points out that the 
program is "not necessarily for 
Germanists." . . . but the pro- 
spective student must speak 
German reasonably well. "Be- 
cause of the rigid caliber ex- 
pected of the students, they 
must be able to cope in Ger- 
many," Dr. Weiner concludes. 

After studying at Berkeley 
and two French universities, 
Dr. Weiner received his Ph.D. 
from Columbia. He had taught 
at Columbia, Brooklyn College, 
University of Washington and 
NYC College at Stoneybrooke. 
He has studied Latin, German, 
Spanish and Italian besides 
French. In Italian, he modest- 
ly insists, "I only cope." 

The tall, thin man's eyes cir- 
cled the small office and came 
to rest on the ruby ring on his 
right hand as he thought back 
over the years — back to his 
childhood and the happy mem- 
ory of a favorite maid who was 
Lapian. "When I was a child, 
she taught me how to read a 
Lapian newspaper," he smiled. 
Seymour Weiner has carried 
on his love affair with lan- 
guage ever since.

Las Vegas Nite-a Welcome Change 

Editors Note: Mr. Weinerman is the Ed- 
itorial Chairman for the 
Massachusetts Collegian. 

In a summer which may be most re- 
membered for the record setting number 
of tops popped in the Orchard, Saturday 
evening's Las Vegas Night was a welcomed 
change from the usual activities. 

The attendance was fair, but would have 
been better had the event been held on a 
weeknight when all students would have 
been on campus rather than at home or at 

Nonetheless, the hundreds who did habit 
the replica of Harold's Club ingeniously set 
up in the Hall of Halls (Student Union Ball- 
room) were treated to an original evening s 
entertainment, certainly the finest this 
summer and perhaps in many winters as 

Everything — from the authentic game 
tables (Chuck-a-luck, Craps, Black Jack, 
etc.) to the bar (with checkered vested bar 
tenders serving such ditties as the B.V.D.), 
to the cowboy clad waitresses, to the red 

suspendered housemen — made clear the fan- 
tastic amount of careful planning and dili- 
gent work which indeed went into making 
the evening what it was. 

Both President Schlosberg and his cap- 
able advisor Lew Gurwitz — a rare breed of 
University employee who has worked dili- 
gently all summer on numerous projects — 
deserve laudation for their successful 

And, sincere sympathy should be ex- 
tended to those of us who after getting over 
the initial shock of reverting to our old Mil- 
ton Bradley Days, proceeded to blow several 
thousand dollars. 

The University calendar needs more eve- 
nings like this all year; all summer it has 
been starving for one. Its appetite is more 
than satiated. It is only a shame that some 
high school juniors monotonously resorted 
to the usual ways of satiating their appe- 
tites — even on this Saturday night. It is 
their loss; the gain goes to all present and 
the credit to the many concerned.

continue in effect for the rest 
of the summer. 

Robert M. Agard, Assistant

at all grade levels including college— more than 55 million 
boys and girls are in school, the highest number in United

Las Vegas Nite Climaxes 

Summer-Long SSEC Effort 

Summer Editor 

To the sound of spinning rou- 
let' ■» wheels and clicking dice the 
Summer Student Executive 
Council, better known to one and 
all as the SSEC climaxed its first 
summer by offering a Las Vegas 
Night for the UMass summer 

The climax of the first summer 
student government, the evening 
was the result of the co-ordinat- 
ing efforts of Advisor Lew Gur- 
with. President Paul Schlosberg 
and Night Chairman Dave Bar- 
tholomew as well as the co-op- 
eration of the entire council. 

According to President Schlos- 
berg Las Vegas Night was orig- 
inally an idea of Advisor Gur- 
with. "He's very modes t" , 

But these few were proven 
wrong. Approximately 350 people 
were present and many wander- 
ed in later in the evening to buy 
money and try their luck at the 
tables. The profit from the Night 
w i 1 1 be donated to Retarded 

Schlosberg, 'Taut Lew has done 
an awful lot of work for and 
with the council. 

"This was a pioneering sum- 
mer," continued Schlosberg, "but 
I think it proved that a student 
government is definitely a ne- 

Due to organizational problems 
the SSEC didn't really get going 
until about the third week of the 
first summer session. However, 
plans for a social evening similar 
to Las Vegas Night had been in 
the offing for several weeks. "It 
takes a long time to plan some- 
thing big, we held it on the ear- 
liest date possible," concluded 

Las Vegas Night, a convincing 
replica of Harold's Club, featured 
authentic gambling tables, bar 
and native U Mass waitresses. 
The admission charge included 
the price of $1,000 worth of pa- 
per money which those attending 
could lose or multiply at the 
gaming tables. 

A highlight of the evening was 
the auction of several gifts do- 
nated by local merchants. The 
big item was an AM^FM radio 
that was bought at the auction 
for $91,000, (paper play money 
of course). 

Judged a success by its Chair- 
man Dave Bartholemew, Las Ve- 
gas Night, according to Barthol- 
emew ran smoothly. "We did 
have some trouble recruiting peo- 
ple to work for the night, but 
eventually kids signed up and 
the training sessions went well," 
he commented. 

According to the chairman 
most of the council was very en- 
thusiastic about the evening. "A 
few were reluctant because they 
felt it wouldn't be successful" 
concluded Bartholemew. 

Advisor Gurwitz summed up 
the reactions of the council and 
those who benefited from their 
efforts." It was a good night 
and everyone seemed to really 
enjoy themselves." 

In addition to Dave Barthol- 
emew who was General Chair- 
man of the evening, the commit- 
tee included Sprague Davis, Leo 
Smith, Skip Davis, Jackie Som- 
ma, Ann McGunigle, Kurt Pet- 
ers, David Fix, Ann Drysdale, 
Ann Maxwell, Connie Rutherfors, 
Noreen Dolan, RusseTTTinkr and 
Paul Schlosberg.

Looking all the world like Miss Kitty patiently waiting for 
Matt Dillon while she changes greenbacks for chips, this co-ed

at Las Vegas Nite.

drinking and gambling, a couple receives the 
services of an Annie-Oakley-miss who was a

Special Train to Transport UConn 
Students to UMass Game Oct 8 

University of Connecticut 
students, hoping to experience 
the nostalgic days of old grads, 
have chartered a special train 
to take them to the October 8, 
Connecticut - Massachusetts 
Yankee Conference football 
game to be played in Amherst. 

Bruce Brown of Windsor 
Locks, chairman of the com- 
mittee in charge of the train 
ride, is assured that 1,000 peo- 
ple wiM take the special over 
the Central Vermont Railways 
line which hasn't been used for 
passengers in about 20 years. 
"We may get as many as 
2,500" he declared. 

The special train will pick up 
the party at Mansfield Depot, 
the passenger station for trav- 
eling Connecticut athletic 
teams, circa 1920, which has 

been abandoned. The railroad 
now uses the line solely for 
four freight trains a day be- 
tween New London and Mont- 

It will take about an hour 
and a half to reach Amherst 
where the Connecticut March- 
ing Band will lead the group in 
a parade to Alumni Stadium, 
site of the football contest. 

Commenting on the plan in 
a memo to William Byxbee, 
president of the senior class, 
U of C President Homer D. 
Babbidge Jr. stated, "The spe- 
cial train to the Connecticut- 
Massachusetts football game 
next October 8 represents a 
wonderful idea. I wild be on 
board— (literally."

Randy, the main character of 
a new novel by Robert Gover, 
which Trident Press will pub- 
lish on October 7, 1966 ($4.95). 
It is through Bandy's eyes 
that Mr. Gover, author of the 
highly acclaimed novel, ONE 
DERSTANDING, tells the 
story of the destruction of an 
enormous vacation home by a 
wild group of wealthy college 
students. He Is an outsider ex-

would shatter their collective

Robert Gover was born in 
Philadelphia and became fath- 
erless at an early age. He was 
raised by his maternal grand- 
parents until the age of seven 
and then was put into Girard 
College, an endowed institution 
in Philadelphia for fatherless 
boys, where, says Mr. Gover, 
"you are a number." Fortu- 
nately, his summers were 
spent in Kentucky with his fa- 
ther's family, who "un-num- 
bered and individualized" him. 
It was at Girard College that 
he began his writing career, 
writing poetry surreptitiously, 
so as to avoid being called a 

ming instructor, and seller of 
football chances. In 1981, when 
nally accepted by British and 
French publishers, Mr. Gover 
had written five novels, none 
of which had been published. 
When the American publisher 
became Interested In this novel, 
Gover was found In Atlantic

concession. It was published in

levels because there 1b usually 
no physician present at high 
school sports activities unless 
the event is a scheduled confer- 
ence game," says Dr. Donald 
M. Ruch of Milwaukee. 

Dr. Ruch has emphasized: "It 
is imperatively necessary that 
the athlete he forbidden to 
walk barefoot in the shower or 
locker room." 

Athletes should also cover 
the dressing bench or chair 
with a towel before sitting 
down, and dust their feet with 
a fungicidal powder after show- 

But powders containing a 
high percentage of starch 
should be avoided since wet 
starch can feed the fungi and 
cause them to multiply. 

Dr. Ruch says each athlete 
should make sure that he uses 
fresh towels, athletic support- 
ers and socks for each game 
and practice. He should in- 
spect his feet carefully daily, 
being on the lookout for itch^ 
ing, burning, peeling, cracking, 
and scaling between the toes — 
roughness, dryness, crusting, 
and scaling on the soles and 
sides of the feet, and thicken- 
ing and discoloration of the 
nails. And most important, he 
should report any skin disor- 
der at once, "so that prompt 
attention may forestall exten- 
sion and complication.

UM Looks at Off-Campus 

The University of Massachu- 
setts Housing Office is again 
looking for off-campus accom- 
modations for married and 
graduate students this fall 

Expanding enrollment has 
made the shortage of off-cam- 
pus apartments almost critical. 
Because the University is ex- 
pected to continue to increase 
in enrollment, the need for ad- 
ditional off-campus apartment 
housing will continue through 
the next several years. 

The University is interested 
in receiving new rental listings 

for moderately priced apart- 
ments. Especially needed are 
apartments for married couples 
that rent in the $75 to $100 
per month range. 

According to the Housing Of- 
fice, rentals in localities within 
10 miles of the campus are 
those needed most. 

Interested property owners 
who have available apartments 
or who are constructing new 
facilities are urged to contact 
the Housing Office, University 
of Massachusetts, Amherst, or

Collegian P oll Uncovers SSEC Members' Motives and Opinions 

Committee Chairman O'Connor Voted Best Councilor 

Summing up the activities and evaluating 
the Summer Student Executive Council seems to 
be a task falling traditionally on the COLLEGIAN 
as the session ends. 

But Exec Councilors in a 47 question COL- 
LEGIAN poll have done the work themselves. 

According to responses (and a 
little research for those four who 
did not reply), makeup of the 

Council consists of 25 represen- 
tatives with two unfilled va- 
cancies, Gorman basement and a 
commuter seat. Of the 25, 16 are 
swing-shift freshmen, two sopho- 
mores and three seniors. 

The question of "Major?" 
elicited only four responses of 
government; three, nearly as 
many, In English; and a variety 
of others as well as five blanks. 
Pushing the career-Interest point 
as a prime reason for Council 
participation, another question, 
"Are you interested hi govern- 
ment as a career or related 
field?" received 11 "no" answers, 
6 "yes" and 2 "possible." 

Why Did You Run? 

One Councilor wrote "I love 
politics," in answering the simple 
question of why did you run. In- 
dications were made by 16 Coun- 
cilors that if they had it to do 
over, they would run again; 19 
are also considering active par- 
ticipation in student affairs in 
the future. From other Counci- 
lors come the reasons why they 
ran for office: 

"I wanted to get into student 
government and be involved with 
the affairs of the students. 

"I believe in direct participa- 

"I wanted to find out what col- 
lege student government was 
like, and I felt that I was quali- 
fied to represent my floor. 


"I wanted to see how the gov- 
ernment was run here; also 
wanted to get involved in stu- 
dent activities. 

"I wanted to participate in a 
substantial extra-curricular ac- 

"Somehow I felt it was time 
to get into the swing of things; 
I wanted to be of some purpose 
to someone. 

"Because it was there. 

"Because I was interested in 
accomplishing something other 
than homework this summer. 

"Personal experience. 

"Urged to do so by my coun- 
silor [counselor]. 

"To interest students in the 
university as a total.' 

"I felt I could actively contri- 

"No one else ran on my floor 
so I had a perfect chance to win. 

"The lack of a student govern- 
ment during the summer has 
bothered me for a long time, and 
I wanted to do what I could to 
make it a success. 


Drug usage among American 
teen-agers may not be as wide- 
spread as some fear, but it is 
not confined to the slums, or to 
a miniscule beatnik fringe. 

According to a report in the 
September issue of Seventeen 
Magazine, based on 1,100 res- 
ponses to a survey sent by the 
publication to girls of 13 to 20, 
from every state in the union: 

• 5.5% surveyed (close to one 
out of every 18) have used 
drugs for other than medicinal 
purposes at least once; 

• three out of 10 of these ex- 
perimenters — one in every 61 
girls studied — are still using 

• more than eight out of 10 of 
the regular users smoke mari- 
juana . . . more than a third 
swallow pills . . . almost a third 
take LSD — and most are in- 
volved with more than a single 

• these girls have little diffi- 
culty in securing drugs 
through illicit channels 

A careful analysis of t h e 
teens' frank and anonymous 
answers to the four-page ques- 
tionnaire also shows that: 

Among girls who have tried 
drugs, half used amphetamines 
(pep pills); almost half, mari- 
juana; one in five, LSD. About 
one in 10 sniffed glue or swal- 
lowed barbiturates. Three - 
forth* of the girls who have 

tried drugs did so between the 
ages of 15 and 17, but 18.0% 
were 14 or younger. 

Almost half the girls In the 
sample have had at least in- 
direct contact with drugs. 
47.0% know a boy or girt who 
uses drugs, or know one they 
believe is using them. 

Most teens have low opinions 
of other teens who try drugs, 
but most are highly curious a- 
bout drugs. 95.0% have discuss- 
ed the subject with friends, in 
school, with their parents, or 
in church. 


Although most teens from 
average homes have enough 
knowledge of heroin to steer 
clear of it ("No kid in his right 
mind takes heroin," says one 
college freshman ) , Seventeen 
reports that some do not real- 
ize they are flirting with nar- 
cotics when they seek a drug 
high from n o n • prescription 
cough medicines. 

Fewer than one in 10 of the 
surveyed teens who had tried 
drugs chose "goof balls" (teen 
vernacular for barbiturates, 
prescription sleeping pills), but, 
the study shows, pep ptlls (am- 
phetamines) are widely used by 
teens who underestimate their 
dangers. Some college students 
take them at exam time to 
keep awake for all-night study-

up this activity as the "accom-

Harry Belafonte To Appear Here 
In First UM Concert Performance 

Harry Belafonte, who will be 
appearing at the University of 
Massachusetts' Curry Hicks 
"Cage" on Sunday, October 2, 
1966, runs the gamut in age, 
education and the economic 
strata, when it comes to classi- 
fying members of his audience. 

At a Belafonte performance 
one can see a true representa- 
tion of all people, old, young, 
students, businessmen . . . the 
complete representation of t h e 
community. The basic reason 
for this kind of a wide swatch 
of acceptance is due to the fact 
that the things Belafonte sings 
about, ring home for all of us, 
regardless of differing chrono- 
loginal beginnings or tastes. 

His serious songs, fun songs, 
tender and dramatic songs are 
all made of the stuff that ev- 
eryone can understand. His so- 
journ into foreign language 
gets the meaning across just 
as readily, for his stage pres- 
ence is such that a foreign 
tongue does not in any way les- 
sen the enjoyment and under- 
standing of a song. 

Belafonte is not a folksinger 
in the purest sense, nor even 
in the wider, impurer sense. He 
is a singing personality who 
draws on the infinitely varied 
repertoire of the world's popu- 
lar music old and new and 
shapes it to his voice style and 

"I don't want to have certain 
limitations placed upon me in 
a categorical sense," saye Bela- 
fonte. "I want to be able to 
sing songs that reflect reality 
and truth, and that are gener- 
ally speaking, beautiful songs. 
There are Just as many songs 
being written today that bear 
these characteristics as there 
were in times past." 

"Why should 1 not be able 
to do a Lerner and Loewe tune 
if I want to, or something else 
of a contemporary nature? Ma- 
ny of these songs reflect the

•folk' feeling even though they 
were written today. Folk songs 
are being shaped and born ev- 
eryday. I want to sing the 
songs of everyday, not just of 
an era that is gone." 

In this program Belafonte 
has recruited the artistic ser- 
vices of a new songstress, a 
voice from the land of Greece, 
whose very sound promises 
new musical experiences. Her 
name is Nana Mouskouri and 
she is that very special type of 

talent marked by the excellence 
of her renditions and the mov- 
ing quality of her presenta •

No, This Isn't What College 
Is Really Like All Year Round 

Editorial Chairman 

The last Collegian. One more 
week left to the end of the summer. 
Hot shit, you made it through a se- 
mester of college, anyway. 

But is this what college is really 
like? Come on, you know inside it 
couldn't be like this. There's a dis- 
proportionate number of immature 
children. Two finals were called off. 
There's been too much drinking. 
And no really close friends — deep; 
not at all like high school. And at 
least in high school you felt like you 

More fun, that's where the good 
friends are. 

No, the sad truth is you've had 
just a taste of college life this sum- 
mer. The real college experience — 
with 13,000 people to choose from, 
with football games and big week- 
ends, with a slower pace, with 
friendships allowed to brew and 
simmer over the year — is a Septem- 
ber to June proposition. It is a 
completely unique experience which 
cannot be compressed into twelve 
sun-filled weeks. It will be very dif- 
ferent here in two weeks, in six 
months. Yes, Lushi, it will. 

So it hasn't been what you 

belonged; you had a place. Who in 
the hell cares up here? Who? 

You do. It's all your ball game. 
Yea, this much you've figured out, 
and so in this way you have gone to 
college. But in most ways — well, 
the summer just isn't the winter. A 
different kind of kids. Everything's 
rushed. Not much attention to de- 
tail, be it in a course. . .or in people. 
And you were going home a lot. 

thought it would be. Hey, get that 
job for the next five months, may- 
be pick up a night course too. Then 
come back next February. Antici- 
pate a truly amazing experience, 
through which you will profoundly 
change in just a few years — maybe 
even one. It's not what you just 
went through to get 13 or so credits. 
It's called "College"— regular Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. And this 
college is great! 

University Store employee* unpack and price textbooks for the fall semes- 
ter. Over 100,000 books must be priced, arranged and displayed in the Stu- 
dent Union in time for the start of the annual fall book sale starting on 
September 12. As usual, there will be long lines, not enough or too many 
books for a particular course, and a confused scramble to find safe places 
to leave "notebooks, pens and handbags" when entering the display area. 
Small price to pay for education. 


Loan Program 
Low-cost Money 

lege students who need borrow- 
ed funds to finance their edu- 
cation are getting an unprece- 
dented break in the new stu- 
dent loan program established 
by Public Law 89-329. 

Since Uncle Sam will pay a 
big share of the Interest char- 
ges, students will -pay less in- 
terest than the banks' "prime 
rate," extended to such favored 
borrowers as the treasurer of 
General Motors or DuPont. 
Less, in fact, than the interest 
one bank pays when it borrows 
from another. 

In addition, most students 
won't have to pay a cent of

when they return to campus 
next February. 

These organizations offer 
credit in the College of Arts 
and Sciences and provide as 
well an important part of the 
curriculum for students who 
are majoring in music. 

The Symphony Band each 
year performs music selected 
from the finest in the reper- 
toire of symphonic literature. 
The Band's season includes 
three concerts on 'campus, and 
an annual tour. The Symph-

On Tuesdays and Thursdays 
from 4:40 - 5:50, the Varsity

either interest or principal 
while they're in school. Stu- 
dents can borrow up to $1,500 
a year in most states, with no 
need to begin repayment until 
they're out of school and estab- 
lished in a job. 

How does a student qualify 
for one of these low-cost loans? 
The word from the bankers and 
other private lenders who'll be 
making the loans is that while 
perhaps 85 per cent of all college 
students will be eligible, under 
terms of the program, finding 
a source of funds is going to 
be the real problem in today's 
tight-money market. 

Many students, say the bank 
ers who helped set up the pro- 
gram, won't start going after 
these loans until they're in 
school this fall. Details of the 
program haven't yet been wide 
ly publicized, and most stu- 
dents probably will first learn 
of them from their school's fi- 
nancial aid officer. 

Because of this, it's expected 
that banks and other lenders in 
college and university .towns 
will be swamped with applica- 
tions. "Tight money" being 
what it is, that means a lot of 
students are going to be disap- 
pointed. There just won't be 
enough money to go around — 
as businessmen, home buyers 
and others needing borrowed 
funds have already discovered. 
Advice from those who'll be 
making the loans, therefore, Is: 
Be an early bird. Students with 
the best chance of getting one 
of the new loans will be those 
who apply at once, to their 
home-town banker or other ap- 
proved lender. 

Even though you have your 
finances all set for the fall 
term, get an application start- 
ed now, in your home town, if 
you're going to need borrowed 
funds in the second half of the 
school year. If. you' wait until 
you get to school, and apply to 
a lender there, it's going to Jse 
like trying to get World Series 
tickets on opening day. 

How do you know whether 
you can qualify for one of 
these low-cost loans? There's a' 
formula that determines "ad- 
Justed family income" — that 
of the student, his parent* and 
his wife, If he's married. If 

that figure is less than $15,000, 
the government will pay all in- 
terest while you're in school, 
and half the interest during re- 
payment of the loan. That 
leaves the student only 3 per 
cent to pay. 

If family income is too high, 
and a student doesn't qualify 
for an interest-subsidized loan, 
he may still apply for funds to 
cover college expenses. But he 
must pay the full interest — 6 
per cent — while in school and 
during repayment of the loan. 

It's possible that, under the 
formula for "adjusted family 
income," a student may qualify 
for an interest-subsidized loan 
even when the family's gross 
income is as high as $20,000. 
The liberal income limits have 
raised a few eyebrows, but 'as 
President Johnson said earlier 
this year, the cost of higher 
education has been rising fast- 
er than family income, and 
"what was a sacrifice ten years 
ago is, for many, nearly im- 
possible in 1966." 

Bankers emphasize that 
they're "not making any mo- 
ney on these loans." The 6 per 
cent Interest established by law 
Is far from a good rate in to- 
day's scarce money market — 
and the long-term loans can tie 
up a bank's lendable money for 
as long as 15 years. A student 
begins repaying his loan nine 
to twelve months after leaving 
school, and repayment can be 
spread over five to ten years, 
depending on the amount bor- 

Nevertheless, most bankers 
will stretch availability as far 
as they can. More than a year 
ago, when there were bills in 
Congress that would have set 
up a government-financed and 
government-operated program, 
it was the banking industry 
that went to Congressional and 
administration leaders to argue 
that private lenders could do a 
better job. 

Banking spokesmen won 
their point, in the face of skep- 
ticism by some lawmakers, 
who doubted they could live up 
to their claims. Bankers are 
therefore going to make every 
effort to prove that private 
lenders can do the job, despite

ed a "frightening reaction" — 
her mouth and neck became 
locked in a spasm, causing her 
to be hospitalized. The same 
girl tried a relaxant before a

Joe Doucette, whose motion 
it was, succeeded in having the 
Council complete its "steward- 
ship" over the intermural pro- 
gram which it established. 

Another measure sponsored by 
swing-shift freshman Doucette 
read: "Move that the Summer 
Student Executive Council give 
its approval and support in 
whatever way is possible to the 
petition (concerning fall I.D. 
cards) being passed around by 
the members of .the 'Swing- 
Shift', Freshman Class of 1970." 
In the controversy-clouded 
evening, although the idea of 
the petition was widely support- 
ed, the failure of the interested 
members to present the actual 
petition to the Council, or even 
its exact wording, lost votes for 
the motion. Some of the repre- 
sentatives attempted to table 
or refer the question to a com- 
mittee for study, but the endorse- 
ment of the Council was ob- 
tained for the bill as it read. 

Doucette reported to the body 
composed (when all are present) 
of 16 members of the class of 
1970 and five upperclassmen, 
that University administration 
spokesmen at the recent Class 
Meeting told swing-shifters, in 
effect, that -they would not be 
"UMass students" in the fall. 

The petition passed to Dou- 
cette in one of his classes, was 
originally started in a move to 
gain admittance to football 
games. Now the petition intent, 
if not its wording, is to allow 
swing-shifters to pay an equiva- 
lent athletic and activities fee, 
somewhat less than a total 29 
dollars, and receive an "LD." 
The card hoped-for would admit 
the holder to all free-with-I.D. 
UMass events. 

A committee meeting called 
for today between noon and 1:30 
p.m. was to look into the peti-

Feature Editor 

Contemporary poet James 
Dickey delighted his audience 
with a reading of his own stim- 
ulating and thought-provoking 
poetry last Wednesday night. 

His subject matter ranged 
from adultry to snakebites 
to the thoughts of a child 
that had been bred by a man 
and a sheep; and each work 
contained a frank and gripping 
view of life coupled with a 
freshly unsophisticated attitude. 

His poem entitled "Sun" de- 
scribed the torture of two sun- 
burnt lovers who "could not" 
and at the same time "could 
not not." 

Also in a light vein was 
"Cherryleg Road," in which he 
described the rendezvous he 
and his girl had when he was 
sixteen and lived In Atlanta — 
a junkyard for old cars. He 
and Doris would work their 
way to eachother, squirming 
through delapidated bodies of

A poem of which Dickey 
himself said, "No one could 
ever find fault with it for orig- 
inality of point of view," was 
"The Sheep-Child." Based on 
country folklore, it was a re- 
cord of some of the thoughts 
of a child whose father had 
been a man and whose mother 
was a sheep. It was the startl- 
ing image of one being who liv-

for all of life that Dickey's po- 
etry displayed throughout.

Next Summer 

Several sections of the poll 
concerned next summer's gov- 
ernment. Only two Councilors in- 
dicated their intention to attend 
one 1967 summer session, an- 

other was possibly going to come. 
On attending both sessions, sev- 
en had no definite idea, and nine 
(plus two graduating seniors) 
answered "no." One representa- 
tive vowed, "Not unless forced." 

But in response to whether or 
not they would seek election if 
they were coming, only two ruled 
the possibility out. 

Facing the 1967 summer stu- 
dent body and government, ac- 
cording to the replies are the 
following major issues: 

1. successful continuance of

Fifteen of the summer govern- 
ment members felt that the fu- 
ture existence of the Council 
was not an issue and that 1966 
had set a precedent that will be 
followed. In addition, responses 
were *'K is needed," and "future 
existence is a question," and "I 
think it has just scratched the 
surface and needs 'more time to 

"J think,'"' elaborated a repre- 
sentative, "it is still an issue; I 
may keep it one myself. Can it 
settle down to business without 
organizational impediments?"

FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1966 

Summer Exec Still Proposing 

by PAT PETOW, Summer Reporter school. 

_ . _. ,. r. .. .. , Nadan made a tentative prom- 

Twenty minutes after 7 p.m., Wednesday's Executive Council meeting began its ise to ^^^ up ^ emergency 

work. The summer government, a 1966 first for UMass, set its last formal session for section, however, no such con- 
Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. If a quorum of 1 7 is maintained, an expected heavy load of stitutional amendment was of- 
fered and, since all such motions 
require one week's tabling, it 
will not be acted upon by the 
ing for a second time. The bill 

business will be on the floor. 

The most detailed proposal on the agenda for this week was tabled to the next meet- 

described a revised plan of sum- 
mer dormitory standards boards. 

On a similar subject, a con- 
stitutional amendment, changing 
Summer Women's Judiciary to 
agree more with the Summer 
Men's Judiciary was passed by 
the Council. 

The section adopted previous- 
ly had provided for election of 
four justices of Women's Judi- 
ciary by dormitory standards 
boards and for one appointed by 
the Women's Affairs Committee 
of the Senate. Formation of the 
1966 summer court agreed with 
the constitution except that 
members served on both lower 
and higher boards, standards and 

Dual membership was pro- 
hibited in the Council plan, ef- 
fective in 1967. 

The new provision, authored 
by Jackie Somma and Marshall 
Nadan, contains the following: 

B. The president of the Student 
Senate shall appoint the mem- 
bers of the Summer Women's 
Judiciary in accordance with the 
Senate's regular appointing pro- 
cedures, except when selections 
are held as provided for below. 

C. The members of the Summer 
Women's Judiciary appointed by 
the president (of the Senate) 
shall be members of the regular 
Women's Judiciary. If five such 
persons are not available, selec- 
tions shall be held in May by a 
joint committee comprised of the 
members of regular Women's 
Judici-ry and an equal number 
of female senators. The Senate 
may exorcise its right of con-

Most of the teens who had 
tried drugs fall into the cate- 
gory of "fun users" and most 
are fairly casual about them. 
"My purpose in life is to ex- 
perience as much pleasure and 
the least amount of pain as 
possible," said a 16 -year -old. 
And a college freshman admitt- 

ed: "I enjoy taking marijuana 
occasionally just as I enjoy 
ice-cream cones." 

For others, drugs answer an 
inner heed. "At times the world 
is just too much," one girl 
wrote. Another, describing sev- 
eral friends who take mesca- 
line and marijuana regularly, 
said: "With them it's not just 
a healthy rebellion but a basic 
malaise. . .a feeling of helpless- 
ness, that everything is wrong 
with their world and there's no- 
thing they can do about it."

an answer, "What single thing

"Publicity toward the end of 
the spring semester and the be- 
ginning of summer aimed at en- 
couraging upperclassmen to run 
for the SSEC" was the reply 
given. Cited as a supporting rea- 

son was the Councilor's concep-

Summer Men's Judiciary, ques- 
tioned what would happen if the 
five members were not found for 
appointment, or changed their 
mind about going to summer 

1966 Council. However, Joe Ross 
suggested before Nadan's seem- 
ing concession that the constitu- 
tion already provided for va- 
cancies by its section (relettered 
to be) F in Article III. The 
existence of the vacancy-filling 
provision had been overlooked by 
the debaters. 

Stricken from the new amend- 
ment, by Councilor Verock, was 
a plan to allow one member of 
a higher judicial body to sit in 
on deliberations of a lower. 
"There's a moral question here," 
said Mik e Lannon in supp o rting 
the removal of the clause, 
which was approved 11 to 2. 

After the substance of the 
constitutional amendment pass- 
ed, the co-sponsors began de- 
bate on the related standards 
board motion. Councilor Ross 
rose to make a recommendation, 
on behalf of Nadan and Somma. 
which would have asked that the 
Student Senate look into the 
matter of the duties of stand- 
ards board members. 

Last Monday, at a meeting of 
current board members and 
house counselors of Emily 
Dickinson and Eugene Field, Na- 
dan reported, the question first 
was presented. Whether the ju- 
dicial board or the house coun- 
selors should "police" regula- 
tions had not been resolved. 

Becoming enmeshed in a de- 
bate over the wording of the 
recommendation (whether a 
vote was to be recorded by the 
Council in approval and wheth- 
er the motion was debatable 
were issues made unclear). Ross 
sat down. 

"This is disgusting the amount 
of time . . ." said Dave O'Con- 
nor, indicating that further work 
on the proposal should take 
place before it was considered. 
Tabled at that point by Verock, 
the five paragraphs will appear 
on the next agenda.

New Student Loan Program . . 

(Continued from page 2) 

their supply of money — one 
of the ways in which govern- 
ment is trying to stem infla- 
tion. Banking industry leaders 
are urging individual banks to 
stretch a point in making stu- 
dent-loan money available. 

Last year, banks made $150 
million in guaranteed loans to 
students, under various state 
and private plans. Under the 
new loan program, it's esti- 
mated that as much as $400 
million may be loaned during 
the coming school year. 

Though under supervision of 
the U.S. Office of Education, 
the new program relies on 
loans from private sources. In 
each state a "guarantee agen- 
cy" will administer the pro- 
gram and guarantee repayment 
of the loans. 

Such agencies have now been 
established in 30 states. In 11 
of these, and in 19 states with 
no agencies of their own, the 
program will be administered 
by the nonprofit United Stu- 
dent Aid Funds, which for six 
years has operated nationally a 
private loan program. In two 
states, plans are still unform- 

Just how does a student go 
about applying for one of these 
loans? Here are some of the 
questions he'll want answered 
— and the answers: 

Q. Where do I go for a loan. 

A. Any commercial or sav- 
ings bank, savings and loan as- 
sociation, credit union or other 
eligible private lender. A list of 
participating lenders in your 
state can be obtained from the 

designated state agency. To get 
its name and address, write or 
call your state's Commissioner 
of Education. 

Q. How much can I borrow? 

A. Up to $1,000 a year for 
undergraduate study, and up to 
$1,500 a year for graduate stu- 
dy or professional school, in an 
accredited college or university. 

Q. How do I know whether 
I am eligible for a subsidized- 
interest loan? 

A. Roughly, add up total fam- 
ily income that of parents, 

student and student's wife. If 
this totals more than $20,000, 
you are not eligible. If the to- 
tal is less than $15,000, you are 
eligible. If total family income 
is between $15,000 and $20,000, 
do this: Add together the de- 
ductions allowed on the most re- 
cent income tax return, and 
$600 for each exemption claimed. 
Subtract this from the family's 
total or gross income. If the re- 
sult is less than $15,000, you're 
probably eligible. Banks and 
other lenders have forms for 
computing accurately this "ad- 
justed family income" figure. 

Q. Do my parents have to co- 
sign a note if I am a minor? 

A. State laws vary. Many 
states permit a minor to execute 
a binding obligation for educa- 
tional expenses. 

Q. How are yearly loans re- 

A. Separate loans are made 
for each academic year. An "in- 
terim note" is . signed for each 
of these loans. When you leave 
school — or after six years under 
the loan program — the interim 
notes will be added together 
and one "payout note" drawn, 

covering the full amount of all 
your yearly loans. 

Q. When and how do I repay 
this "payout note?" 

A. Within 9 to 12 months 
you'll begin making monthly 
payments. Repayment can be 
spread over 5 to 10 years if more 
than $2,000 is to be repaid. Your 
state guarantee agency will 
have its own regulations con- 
cerning method of repayment. 

Q. Can I make guaranteed 
loans at more than one bank? 

A. In some states, no. Check 
with your state agency. 

Q. My state has been operat- 
ing a student loan program for 
some time, under which I have 
borrowed school money. Does 
the new Federal program 
change any of the arrangements 
made under this program? 

A. No. Your previous arrange- 
ments with state programs are 
unchanged — unless you signed 
notes after Nov. 8, 1965, when 
President Johnson signed the 
Higher Education Act setting up 
the Federal program. In that 
case, you may be eligible for in- 
terest benefits. Consult your 
state agency or the lending in- 
stitution from which you bor- 

Q. What if every bank or other 
lender I apply to turns me down? 

A. Write to the guarantee 
agency in your state for advice. 
Talk over your needs, also, with 
the financial aid officer at your 
college or university.
